The national museum is superb one of the best museums in Scotland has a wide variety of exhibits and is well worth a visit it has something for everyone and is a great way to spend a few hours.
It’s like a combination of most of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, DC, with exhibits ranging from Scottish and Edinburgh history, natural history, technology, and culture and anthropology.

Asking how much it was to tour the museum, we learned that Museums, all museums are free in Scotland.
Such an understated gem! Wonderful museum with fabulous friendly and enthusiastic staff.

Excellent museums, from the history of surgery to the path specimens and particularly the battlefield surgery display, thoroughly enjoyed this museum.

His insights helped us to understand the whole concept and made this one of the best museums we’ve visited in a long while.
It’s a very impressive and extensive museum nowadays - it brings the experience of coal mining through the ages to life through exhibits, first hand accounts, audiovisual displays, and a great interactive tour of...

The Scottish Fisheries Museum Anstruther 43.3 km away
#1 of 1 Museums in Anstruther
There is a lot to see, it is laid out in a clear and interesting way, and you are encouraged to photograph it, touch it and get involved in it in a way that few museums let you.
This museum is fascinating at any time and deceptively large, Tardis style, but this summer the Forth At War Exhibition has capped it all in the year we commemorate the centenary of the Battle Of Jutland 1916.Admi...
Ardalanish Isle Of Mull Weavers Bunessan
#1 of 2 Museums in Bunessan
The weaving shed is like a working museum with many of the looms and machines nearly a century old.
Until a few days ago I knew nothing about weaving and was expecting a museum.
Scottish National Portrait Gallery Edinburgh 0.6 km away
#6 of 93 Museums in Edinburgh
As with most of the museums in Edinburgh, entry is open with donations accepted, and the main hall as you come in is a beautiful space, opening up to the upper floors, and a frieze of historical figures running ar...
Another of Edinburgh's free museums - lovely for a contemplative wander.
Iona Abbey and Nunnery Iona

Highlights for me were the cloister with intricate stone carvings, a more recent restoration and the museum which houses a large collection of carved stones including three of the original high crosses from the si...
The Celtic crosses are magnificent, the abbey (which was rebuilt/restored in the 19th century) and its cloisters are very tranquil, and the museum tells the abbey's interesting story, starting with its founding in...

The Blackhouse Arnol
#1 of 1 Museums in Arnol
This really is a fantastic little museum and Historic Scotland should be commended for ensuring it is preserved for generations to come.
Small museum with friendly staff and a real Blackhouse to explore complete with peat fire.
Mull Museum Tobermory
#1 of 4 Museums in Tobermory
Little local museums such as this can be a bit limited but here you will find a wealth of information and fascinating history.
In a way, it is exemplary of how much you can do with relatively little, as opposed to what happens in important museums that do so little with so much.
Scottish National Gallery Edinburgh 0.6 km away
#7 of 93 Museums in Edinburgh
Arguably, one can see other types of art in other cities' museums, but the Scottish gallery offers a wonderful exposure to the great Scotts artists from before Raeburn to where the Modern takes over with the Color...
As an art historian who worked at the Met, I can get a wee bit snobbish about smaller museums, but the Scottish National Gallery delivered one gem after another.

Hadn't heard if this place until it was shortlisted for the museum of the year award.
Don't expect a massive art museum, it's small but wonderful..
Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries Dunfermline 20.7 km away
#2 of 5 Museums in Dunfermline
Like a good many smaller galleries/museums it really has a great go at judging its space, mixture of exhibits, etc. Good if you want to learn about famous Fife folk (Fifans?) and historic royal Scotland.
Great museums upstairs, lots of reading nooks, wish it was in my town!

Skye Museum of Island Life Kilmuir
#1 of 1 Museums in Kilmuir
One of the best museums I have ever been to.
Most of the information is presented in fairly dense blocks of text, visitors accustomed to more flashy exhibits typical of major city museums may find this off-putting.
Museum of Islay Life Port Charlotte
#1 of 2 Museums in Port Charlotte
One of the drawbacks of big museums (the V&A, for example) is that they are *so* big that it's difficult to take everything in, and impossible to see everything and spend time actually looking at things.
this museum has loads of very interesting objects of every day life in years past, many interesting photographs and stories and will be enjoyed by all age groups, they also have some very good stone carvings to see
Linlithgow Canal Centre Linlithgow 24.7 km away

The museum and shop is excellent with lots of photographs and interesting information.
Museum on the Mound Edinburgh 0.7 km away
#9 of 93 Museums in Edinburgh
In many of the cities my wife and I have visited there are smaller museums that are interesting and serve as an oasis of calm during tourist season.
Free admission (as there is for most museums/galleries in Edinburgh) which was a bonus.

Throughout our trip we visited many different military museums, often inside other attractions, and this was the one that stands out the most.

One of our favourite venues and a great walk along the Waters of Leith from Stockbridge. 2 excellent museums within 200 yards of each other and sharing the responsibility of modern art and exhibitions for Edinburgh.
The permanent collection is interesting--I particularly liked a Hockney and the Doig "MIlky Way", but the best part was the Surrealist exhibit which featured many Dali's and Magrittes gathered from museums I had n...

All too often, museums honor the homes and contributions of only the wealthy.
we really liked this informative, unassuming museum which provided a lot of information about life in the city, historical events, and how the town evolved throughout the ages.
Museum of the University of St Andrews St Andrews 50.2 km away

Free and informative, this little museum has picturesque views of the sea from the rooftop, fun videos of student life, and all sorts of academic and religious memorabilia.
Brilliant museum charting the history of the Uni and it's place in the world.
Callendar House Falkirk 35.4 km away
#1 of 2 Museums in Falkirk
This a weird collection of mini museums with a working Victorian kitchen.
The loch plays host to various species of ducks and swans, while Callendar House itself is a fascinating museum of local history and occasional special exhibitions.
