What people are saying:

The Museum is free and always host great exhibitions, some might cost (a very small price), so it’s better to check online and if possible reserve a ticket but you can also buy them on the spot.The Museum is huge and gorgeous, perfect to spend a rainy day and it offers you a world of discovery all under one roof. So you can entertain anyone as there are many trails you can follow: art, science and technology, the natural world, design & fashion, Scottish history and archeology.It’s truly a gem.

Additional Information


Constructed in 1999, the Scottish Museum is considered one of the best buildings in Scotland in the 20th century, adding a lively modern touch to the old town of Edinburgh. The architectural design of the museum closely integrates with Scotland's unique history and natural environment, especially with the round tower of Edinburgh Castle. The surface is made of Scottish gold sandstone, which creates an ancient appearance. The Scottish Museum is well lit and the sun can fill almost every corner of the hall.
