國家蘇格蘭博物館也是在我們住的youth hostel附近而已。位於Grey Friars正對面。最棒的是：免費入場！來到愛丁堡一定要來這逛逛。因為這一整棟樓一共有八層的展覽可以讓你看個夠！不過這次來真的沒什麼時間慢慢晃。對蘇格蘭歷史文化有興趣的話，一定要抽出至少半天的時間仔細的品嚐每一層樓的展覽。絕對不會讓你失望的！
National Museum of Scotland is located near our youth hostel. It's right across from Grey Friars. Best of all, admission is FREE! If you come to Edinburgh, you must spend some time here. There are eight stories all together, and you are bound to love everything in the museum. However, because of our limited time, we could only have a quick glance at everything. If you happen to be interested in the history and/or culture of Scotland, you must spare at least half a day's time to slowly savor each and every floor. Satisfaction is guaranteed!
