Right there is some great exhibits here but its not the easiest museum to navigate (and I'm not the only one to think this from other reviews). And how long do you spend here? I put 2/3 hours on the review but you will never see and absorb everything so you would need another visit to properly appreciate it
Really enjoyed the Natural History and Geology side of the museum and the Science and Tech areas were very interesting, but maybe we missed some of the areas because we felt it was lacking in Scottish history, I expected it to be more in depth about Scottish kings and queens and Scotlands relationship with the world, and conflicts with England.
We had two visits here and didnt see everything we wanted to, maybe on our visit next year, there will be a better map and signage.
Oh but before I forget it, the mechanical clock is a great piece of visual art!
