In my 20 odd years of visiting Edinburgh not once have I come across or heard of the National Museum of Scotland. The way I described it to Jake when I got home was the Hancock Museum but better, so if you're a fellow North Easterner you'll know what I mean (hopefully) and it's located on Chambers Street!
I took a heck of a lot of photos when I visited all the way back in March for Claire's birthday day out , so I'll keep this a predominantly photo based post. Enjoy! Oh, and let me know in the comments if you've been here before!!
[All photos were also taken on my old camera so of course the quality sucks]
Sooo, I've gotten to this point in photo editing and realized that even with cutting out 3/4's of the photos I took, there are still a few too many. Therefore this is to become a two part post haha.
As you can see from the photos above their 'animal hall' as I dubbed it, is so awesome. There was so much to see and so many stunning species represented. This section of the museum, alongside the main hall (shown in the third photo) for sure have the wow factor when you first walk in and I just didn't know where to look!
I'm gonna quickly include some photos of the other 'Natural World' galleries, Earth in Space and Restless earth which sit right next to the Animal World - both of which are equally as beautiful and interesting.
