National Museum of Scotland

This weekend I figured I was gonna do some more exploring, so I paid a visit to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. From the outside it does seem like a decent sized building, but what greets you when you enter is this huge absolutely stunning hall. There are 5 floors in the museum and you can see all of them from the main hall. Arches going  from the 1st floor up to the roof windows creates a beautiful piece of interiors and are definitely worth a visit. 

There are all sorts of things to look at in the museum, from animals, to space, to arts and design, to clothes and technology. This is a great place to visit for their collection, but also to vitness a great piece of architecture. Being an artist/architecture student I really appreciated both the collection and the museum itself. It's a huge place and a little confusing so getting lost is not difficult, but that's just a way to discover more about this place.

If you are heading to Edinburgh in the near future,it is worth adding a little visit to the National Museum of Scotland on the time schedule.
