The New Galleries

Updated: Mar 27

The National Museum on Chamber Street recently opened its new galleries and last Thursday was the first chance I had to pop along. With the promise of food I managed to convince my brother to join me on my travels. We had a few errands to run so took care of those then headed over to the Museum

There is so much to see but we just went to the new galleries, the rooms are a little dark compared to the main hall so the photos aren’t the best so really you’ll just have to go check it out for yourself, if you haven’t already!

Theres something for everyone from shoes…

To cars….

And for the inner child there are some puzzles and fun things to try out

Although I’m not going to lie this one was too hard for me! (check out the video on instagram)

Time to just get back to focusing on the displays and not playing on them!

I’ve already seen quite a few people take this photo but you can see why, the planes lined up in the middle of this room look too good to resist several snaps.

Our last stop was the Charles Rennie Mackintosh furniture…arguably some of the most recognisable work by a Scottish designer/architect. He was most definitely one of a kind

Matt was super patient on our little adventure but time for the main event…Byron

Now I’m a little embarrassed to admit I’d never been before but its another one of those restaurants that was in England a while before it made the journey North but boy am I glad it did.

We went for a couple of burgers, obviously, with a side of onion rings and fries with cheese and bacon; these are a must order!

As you can see we really enjoyed the burgers and were pretty stuffed but just couldn’t resist a milkshake for dessert.

There are 2 restaurants in Edinburgh so theres no excuse that you can’t get to one so if you haven’t been already get yourself down there. Its the perfect way to refuel after using all your energy wandering around the museum.
