The National Museum of Scotland is housed in magnificent buildings. The Edinburgh Museum of Science and Art - as it was originally called - was at the forefront of engineering and design when it opened on 19th May 1866. In 1998, the new Museum of Scotland building opened. Its design incorporates many references to Scotland's history and landscapes.
