  Peoples' Museum - Tolbooth - Royal Mile
by scotlandscotour

I have very fond memories of this, when I visited as a child - I hope its still as good. Anyway, if its free, its worth it!!!

Situated in the historic Canongate Tolbooth, this museum tells the story of the life and work of Edinburgh's people from the late 18th century to the present day. Includes award winning video. Disabled access to first floor only.

You'll be passing it anyway - so pop in, if only for a few minutes!

Sun: 1400 - 1700. (August only)
