National Museum of Scotland
The golden stone and striking modern architecture of the
National Museum's new building, opened in 1998, make it
one of the city's most distinctive landmarks. The five
floors of the museum trace the history of Scotland from
geological beginnings to the 1990s. The new building con-
nects with the original Victorian museum, which under-
went a major revamp in 2011; it covers natural history, ar-
chaeology, scientific and industrial technology, and the decorative arts of ancient Egypt,
Islam and the Orient.
