"Royal Museum" National Museum of Scotland Tip by Nemorino

National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh: 36 reviews and 77 photos


Adjoining the new Museum of Scotland is a fine old Victorian building which houses the Royal Museum, with collections of Decorative Arts, Science and Industry, Archaeology and the Natural World.

Since this museum is FREE you can simply walk in and take a look at one or another of the departments anytime you feel like it. It's an interesting museum, but parts of it are somewhat dated, so they are planning "a major development project for 2008-2012 which will reinvent the Royal Museum for the twenty-first century."

Open Monday to Saturday 10am - 5pm, Tuesday 10am - 8pm, Sunday 12 noon - 5pm.
