Suspended Exhibit at the National Museum of Scotland

The National Museum of Scotland is situated on Chambers Street in Edinburgh (in the heart of the Old Town, and just a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile). An imposing modern building, it nevertheless doesn't look out of place amongst the Old Town buildings. The museum's remit is to explore, in its own words “the diversity of the natural world, world cultures, art and design, science and technology and Scottish history, all under one roof”.

It is a wonderful place in which to spend an entire day with exhibitions ranging, as you might expect, from art to science and biology. So you're just as likely to view an exhibit about ice age mammoths as one about the Higgs boson, art or sculpture.
