The National Museum of Scotland was formed in 2006 as a merger of the new Museum of Scotland and the adjacent Royal Museum. The two buildings, located on Chambers Street in central Edinburgh, both retain their unique character.
The National Museum’s collections cover Scottish antiquities, culture and history, as well as science and technology, natural history, and world cultures, displaying 8,000 archaeological finds, artefacts and medieval objects from around the world. Of particular interest are the recently refurbished galleries of Science and Technology and Art, Fashion and Design, the magnificent Grand Gallery, and Dolly, the world’s most famous sheep and the first successful clone of a mammal from an adult cell.
Visitors to the Museum further benefit from free admission, as well as changing events and exhibitions.
