Time for my final post from Edinburgh and this one, as you may have guessed from the post title, is all about the National Museum of Scotland.
The National Museum of Scotland was recommended to me by several people. I'm a big museum fan anyway (I actually took a module on museums and galleries in my degree), so I was excited to check it out. Unfortunately, my feet were aching and I was a bit tired and grumpy, which meant I probably didn't make the most of my visit. Nevertheless, it was a great place to spend an hour.
As part of Fringe, the museum was hosting free music gigs which I found a bit frustrating. The music was very loud and it was distracting when I was trying to fill my head with knowledge. There were a couple of super cute girls practising their highland dancing skills though, who you can see in the top left of this photo. g
As I'm a fan of taxidermy and related arts, the natural history section was my favourite. As well as models of many animals, there were also preserved mammals, skulls and fossils.
Next time I visit Edinburgh, I'll be sure to visit before my feet get tired so I can truly make the most of it!
