Museum of Edinburgh

A brisk ten-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley station, you’ll find a maze of historic rooms crammed full of iconic objects from the capital’s past. It’s fun for kids too. There’s an interactive learning space, crafts to explore, detective trails, and a storytelling corner. There are also colourful galleries where kids can learn how Edinburgh people have lived over the years.

It’s open Thursdays to Mondays until 5pm, and admission is free for everyone.
