The People's Story Museum displays the real life status of the people in different historical periods in Edinburgh, and is a place to quickly learn about Edinburgh.
The People’s Story Museum displays the history of Edinburgh through the perspective of a Scot. There are statues in daily life, such as cooking, reading paper, shopping, etc. The museum is not a testament to the "glorious years", but to the social history of Edinburgh. Insight into the severe poverty experienced by the people since the 18th century.
The People’s Story Museum allows visitors to understand that the daily life of ordinary workers in the past few centuries is not prominent in royal history. The biographies of the people on display and the oil paintings of the laborers are very vivid, and there is also a small screening hall.
For a glimpse into the lives of the local people of Edinburgh dating back to the 18th century, The People’s Museum on the Royal Mile is a great find. The exhibits in the museum focus on ordinary people and what they did for work, leisure as well as their political and religious struggles. The staff is very enthusiastic and eager to answer any questions. Free admission.
Small museum in Royal Mile tells the history of the ordinary people of Edinburgh from 18th century to present day. Filled with the sights, sounds & smells of the past! Free entry so worth dropping in out of the rain for an hour or so if need be!
Bit old fashioned in its presentation but has some fascinating stuff, and it's free.
Very interesting museum that tells the story of Edinburgh through its people. I found the story of the whalers particularly interesting.
