The Museum of Scotland is an excellent exhibition and a beautiful building that is both modern and yet still traditionally Scottish in its detail. It's a pity they didn’t get these architects to do the new Parliament building.

There are 8 levels to the museum. At the lowest level you are shown the pre-history, geology, and early people of Scotland. As you ascend the levels you progress through time with exhibits that explain how Scottish identity, monarchy, religion, trade, industry and culture evolved. There is a lot to see and it is all beautifully and imaginatively presented.

Be sure to collect a map of the museum from the information desk as the layout is a bit of a maze. You should also go all the way to the top and the Roof Terrace where the views of Old Edinburgh and the Castle are excellent.

This is a must see attraction!
