Very impressive and diverse
The National Museum of Scotland is adjacent to the National Museum of Scotland. It's a very impressive and diverse museum with collections ranging from fauna and flora, life-size animals, British and international wildlife (with the areas where the species are found) and lots of interactive games for children. There's an old part with Egyptian mummies which is also well explained, several objects brought from English voyages of exploration, a collection of porcelain, precious objects of antiquity and explanations of the movements of peoples and ethnic groups through the ages. In the main room, which has a glass roof that makes it very clear, there is a large totem from Africa and a concert of Scottish orchestra, children could sit at a table to drawing and discover activities of the museum.
