Free Day Out at the National Museum of Scotland

Written by Karen Bryan

We recently visited the newly extended National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.  As all state museums in the UK are free to enter, they are one of my top money saving tips for frugal day outs.

During our visit there was a the Passion for Glass exhibition. My favourite piece was the table.

There’s a roof terrace with views over Edinburgh.

The other advantage of visiting UK museums is that it’s a weather proof activity.
