About National Museum of Scotland

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.
