NATIONAL MUSEUM OF SCOTLAND

The National Museum of Scotland is in the middle of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, just minutes
from the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle - it was formed in 2006 with the merger of the New Museum
of Scotland and the adjacent Royal Museum on Chambers Street.

The modern design of the former (completed in 1998) is distinct from the Neo-Romanesque style of the latter which did not fully open until 2011 after extensive restoration and extension.

This development included the opening of sixteen new galleries comprising some 8000 objects from local and world wide sources, eighty percent of which were previously not on display.
