National Museum of Scotland

Highly recommended
Two adjoining buildings make up the National Museum of Scotland. The Royal Museum, housed in a masterpiece of Victorian architecture, exhibits disparate collections: fossils, furniture, decorative arts, stuffed animals etc. The Museum of Scotland, meanwhile, is located in a modern building (inaugurated in 1988). Its collections chronologically showcase the country's natural world and its inhabitants, spanning the geological origins of Scotland up to the present day.
