  • This museum does a great job of telling the history of edinburgh. The exhibits are well laid out. It is much larger than it looks to be from the outside.  more »
  • From the outside this looks to be a little museum but it is surprisingly spacious inside and the building itself (Huntly House) dates from the late 15th century and is very interesting in its own...  more »

  • This is one of the museum in Edinburgh I like! It is on royal mile and on a traditional building, which I love! I like the narrow spiral staircases, up and down rooms. Exhibition is also great! Love the children art room area. Highly recommended!
  • Deceptively large, on multiple floors and a courtyard outside it looks much smaller than it is. There is a lot of history there as well as various items to look at over a couple of floors and a basement. Good for kids to look around too. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
