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.

Our trips always seem to end up near the water and we look for museums, ships on display or harbor tours in the locale.

Great to be able to touch exhibits and climb into aircraft and helicopters - quite unlike an other museums.
Bob certainly made us feel very welcome and took us around all areas of the museum with fascinating insights along the way.
One of the most fascinating museums I have been to
Loved the museum with plenty of history and plenty stories to hear and cells/areas to see.
A somewhat expert on aircraft museums owing to my young son MASH was only recommended to me when in the area visiting friends.
The volunteers who run this museum have done an amazing job over the years to build the museum into a place packed full of wonderful exhibits and stories from the first days in 1913 and the life of the station dur...
I've been to all sorts of museums and heritage centres all over the country, and this attraction (awesomely run by volunteers) is up there with the best and certainly a 'must see' if you are in the area.
... the amazing Johnston photo collection If you are visiting Wick and it's raining , pop into see it, it's a great place to visit and also cheap , less than a fiver for a museum ?? Great value I will be back again
For a town of this size it must be one of the best museums in the country, and it also has extensive archives for those looking to research family history or other local topics.
If you are in Lerwick, I would really recommend a visit it was one of the best local museums I've been to, and we would certainly visit again in the future!
Admiralty Gateway Peterhead
However, listen to the commentary and take time to wander about, this is about as real as it gets and is an antidote to the usual soporific theme museums.
Just back from a visit to Peterhead Prison Museum, was really informative & interesting, the headsets allow you to walk round at your own leisure, a real insite to how it was for both prisoners & guards, if you ge...
Usually I find that living history museums a bit awkward...these living historians were great.
One big difference about this and other museums I have been to is that you can touch and explore the exhibits.

Asking how much it was to tour the museum, we learned that Museums, all museums are free in Scotland.

Small but informative museum in visitor centre.
This is one of the best war museums I have ever visited and visitors will learn so much in an interesting (and fun for some of the bits) way.
One of the best museums I have ever been.
There aren't many museums where you are invited, when you buy your ticket, to take photographs, sit on the furniture, and play the instruments but that is the case in this house and my visit was enhanced by a very...

Dalgarven Mill Kilwinning
We kicked off with a delicious coffee and scone, had a tour of the astonishingly extensive museum and more fascinating tales over a delicious light lunch of pea and asparagus soup, panini, quiches and delicious ho...
We enjoyed a delicious home made lunch at the mill, followed by a visit to the attached museum which was a beautiful restoration.
Museum of Lead Mining Wanlockhead
The tour comprises a small but very interesting museum, a guided walk (with Bob) 150m into the lead mine, the recreated miners’ cottages over three eras and a fascinating insight into the miners’ library which is...
Scattered over three sites the guided tour takes you into a drift mine, a very informative museum, cottages in which the miners and their families lived and - a real suprise - the subscription lending library esta...
This is one of the BEST and most moving museums that my mother and I visited while in Scotland.
This is one of the best military museums I've visited.

The only distillery that still uses the really old fashioned, original open mash tun processes, so therefore as much a museum as a simple tour.

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.
This is one of the best museums I have been to.It is beautifully laid out with so many interesting things to see and do,we were impressed
This new museum has wonderful memorabilia and exhibits of the great British explorers Scott and Shackleton, with an opportunity to explore Scott's ship, that was built in Dundee.
We also took part in an architectural drawing class as part of the festival of museums which was fun and unexpected, we also learnt a lot about drawing techniques and watercolouring.
We enjoyed a wonderful concert by Wendy Carle Taylor at Halloween, an exploration to welcome the darker part of the year, She is a magnificent singer and we enjoyed the Museum exhibits afterwords
It's a great break when you've tired of all of the museums and historical sights in Glasgow.
Absolutely loved our visit to Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre, thought provoking with humour and horror of the cycle of life and death all played out in the most fascinating museum.
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.
One of the most interesting museums I have visited in years.
The interactive displayed boards for each plane are the best I have ever come across in museums, and the use of videos to highlight the history of each example contained, linked to the lighting system was a great...
