National Museum Scotland

Visit the National Museum of Scotland and feel ok with skipping some exhibits. Just make sure you head to the rooftop!
You’ve probably all heard about the National Museum of Scotland. Since opening its doors in the late 19th century, it has delighted and educated visitors of all ages. Whether you’re intent on diving into Scottish history or seeing the world-famous Dolly the Sheep, the museum has something for everyone. However, we want to point you to its best-kept secret – the Rooftop Terrace. Take the lift to the 7th floor for a panoramic view of the city nestled in the heart of Old Town. Native plants lining the terrace pay homage to Scotland’s diverse biology, while the minimalist design pulls your view to the edge. Walk along the edge, checking off some of the city’s most famous buildings, all the while smiling down at the throngs of tourists lining the streets below. Enjoy the breeze and the quiet it brings before you dive back into your exploration of Edinburgh.
