Continuing on from this post (the Natural World sections of the National Museum of Scotland), these are some of my favorite photos from the World Cultures galleries. I found these areas pretty hard to photograph in without getting lots of other visitors photo bombing due to the glass cases. Conversely this is actually an aspect that I liked about the World Cultures displays. The 360 degree glass cases allow you to get a good look at the exhibits for many angles as well as casting interesting light and shadows.
[FYI - all photos were taken on my old/broken camera]
Due to the difficulty in photographing, upon looking back at the images I took I wasn't happy enough with a lot of them to post them but I'm sure you can see from those I have included the diversity and interactivity is appealing and interesting to many different people including children. While we were there they even had a big quilt laid out beneath the totem pole and were having a 'storytime' kind of thing for lots of toddlers. Though I'm not a fan of having to dodge past running toddlers or listening to screams echo, I do like how they specifically try to include the children in an environment that more kids should get to experience and learn in.
Lastly are just a couple images from the main gallery but I thought they were fun so wanted to include them!
Have you been to the National Museum of Scotland? If not do you think it's somewhere you'd like to go on your next visit to Edinburgh?
