A Day at the Museum

A couple of weekends ago I took the kids for a day at the museum.

The National Museum of Scotland, to be precise!

If you’ve not been here before, do pay it a visit. It’s got a bit of everything. I think of it as like the British Museum, Natural History Museum and Royal Observatory all rolled into one reasonably-sized building.

Ben was rather taken by this curious half-plane half-helicopter contraption.

Ellie liked learning about elephants and lions.

Of course we all liked the T-Rex! (though I kept to a safe distance).

We learnt about constellations too.

After the museum, we had a walk down the Royal Mile. Ben was chuffed to find a door his size.

And we ended the day at the Scottish Parliament.

Feeling suitably cultured and educated (and exhausted) it was back on the bus home.
