Full Description

Created in 2006, the National Museum of Scotland was born as a merger between the Museum of Scotland, which was totally devoted to the history and culture of Scotland, and the Royal Museum, a museum of natural history. This combination is reflected in the exhibits you will see on your tour.

Admire a range of treasures, from science to archaeology, fashion, and history. Your guide will explain the history of each artefact and allow you to interact with the pieces.
