The start of Terry’s holidays so as the weather was looking mixed and that the children didn’t get up until mid morning we decided to stay local. We went to the National Museum of Scotland to visit the exhibition on Mary Queen of Scots. We found our membership cards so we didn’t have to pay.
The exhibition is worth a visit. Well laid out with excellent information on Mary Queen of Scots. It doesn’t romanticise the lady but lays out her story in chronological order. The film about the death of Darnley was interesting – I didn’t realise Kirk o’Field was close to Chambers Street.
After the exhibition we went to the roof to see the daytime fireworks from the castle. It was very brief and fireworks are better in the evening. I got some good photos from the roof top.
Lunch was at Cafe Mother India, Matthew’s first visit. We enjoyed the meal though Matt didn’t find much on the menu to eat.
Another quick visit to see some more of the museum before heading home.
Couldn’t take photos at the exhibition but there are photos some of the rest of the museum including us dressing up!
