Fun place to get out of the rain. Be prepared for stairs though, it’s over 6 floors. Great for kids.
I used to work here so I'm biased but think this is one of the best places in Edinburgh to visit. Views are stunning, a light touch on history and great fun for everyone.
The museum has two main features – first, it has several floors featuring optical illusions, light tricks, old-fashioned games, and magic displays which we had a lot of fun playing with. Then, the “main attraction” is the Camera Obscura on the roof. Edinburgh’s Camera Obscura dates from the 19th…

“open daily, and entrance is free. With Scotland through the ages at its heart, it has 5 floors of eclectic exhibitions which also explore culture and natural history across the globe. It’s a stunning building and the Grand Gallery makes a thrilling first impression. There is a fabulous fine dining restaurant, The Tower Restaurant, above the museum with wonderful food and fantastic views. You will need to book in advance! ”

“Arthur's Seat is an extinct volcano which is the main peak of the group of hills in Edinburgh, Scotland, which form most of Holyrood Park, described by Robert Louis Stevenson as "a hill for magnitude, a mountain in virtue of its bold design". It is situated just to the east of the city centre, about 1 mile to the east of Edinburgh Castle. The hill rises above the city to a height of 250.5 m, provides excellent panoramic views of the city and beyond, is relatively easy to climb, and is popular for hillwalking. Though it can be climbed from almost any direction, the easiest and simplest ascent is from the east, where a grassy slope rises above Dunsapie Loch. At a spur of the hill, Salisbury Crags has historically been a rock climbing venue with routes of various degrees of difficulty, but due to hazards, rock climbing is now restricted to the South Quarry and a permit is required.”

“he Real Mary King’s Close is hidden beneath the characteristic and lively streets of Edinburgh’s busy thoroughfare – the Royal Mile. Shrouded in myths and mysteries, the Close and its warren of streets, homes, and passageways offer a truly unique 5 star visitor experience. Unlock the secrets of Edinburgh’s only preserved 17thcentury street, wander through a labyrinth of Old Town alleyways, avoid the cry of gardyloo, and discover the stories of the people who lived, worked, and died here.”

“A visit to Dynamic Earth is like nothing else on Earth. It's a chance to experience the primeval forces of nature as they shaped our planet, to journey through space and time and even go on a 4DVENTURE around the world. You'll be embarking on the interactive adventure of a lifetime - the lifetime of our planet. Travel back to the beginning of time in our Deep Time Machine and witness the big bang first hand. Rocket through the universe in a spaceship travelling billions of times faster than the speed of light and see stars explode on the other side of the galaxy. Feel the ground shudder as a molten lava flow speeds straight towards you and volcanoes throw clouds of ash and gas into the sky. The Polar ice caps are brought to within your reach giving you the chance to touch an iceberg for yourself. You can see your breath, smell the cold and feel your hands turning numb as you stand beneath the Aurora Borealis. Fly high above ice-cold glaciers and marvel at their power as they carve out entire continents. From your dizzying height it’ll feel so real you could almost be there before your soar from the sky and dive beneath the ocean. As you plunge into the ocean depths in our yellow submarine you'll be able to explore the wonders of this aquatic world through the portholes. Man the periscope and search for whales or simply marvel at the incredible creatures that live where life wasn't thought possible. Watch a 30-foot wall of waves tell the moving story of the oceans without them life on this planet wouldn't be here and you certainly wouldn't be reading this! Experience films as you've never seen - or felt them - before in the ShowDome Cinema with its 360-degree digital dome technology and thunderous surround sound. There are many films to choose from throughout the year. Keep an eye on the schedule.”
