The National Museum of Scotland ~ A Visual Tour
Rainy and windy, another day in Edinburgh Scotland but then...sunshine.
12 travel journalist and bloggers, all from different countries, came together in Scotland for the Creative Scotland press trip, sponsored by Visit Scotland.
Our first stop was the newly remodeled National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street, Edinburgh.
"A £47m initiative is transforming the magnificent Victorian part of the National Museum of Scotland (formerly the Royal Museum) into a must-see attraction for people from Scotland and around the world."
"With its soaring pillars and high windows, the light-filled atrium of the Grand Gallery provides a spectacular start to your museum visit. On display are large items that highlight Scotland’s contribution to the world and reflect the vast diversity of our collections."
"The Natural World galleries tell the story of our planet, its place in the solar system and the universe, and the life upon it. Marvel at our Wildlife Panorama, explore the evolution, diversity and amazing abilities of the animal species of the world and discover the inventions and technologies that have helped increase our understanding of the world."
Our private tour through the museum was capped off with a delicious dinner served in the newly created entrance below the first level.
There are many more galleries to eXplore and hours of fun examing the thousands of incredible objects in this beautiful museum.
The National Museum of Scotland is in the middle of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, just minutes from the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle, and is open daily 10:00-17:00.
