  • Very interesting free museum. As a Scot of a certain age- lots of the exhibits took me right back to my childhood when a 10/- note felt like a million pounds! We managed to solve the puzzle and got our chocolate coins! 😁 The staff were welcoming and friendly too.
  • If you have ever wondered what a million pounds looks like then you have to go here. Just inside the door is a display case with 1 million pounds in it. This is a fun and educational place charting the history of Scottish money. It's also free entry and will fill an hour. Well worth a visit when you are wandering around the city.
