National Museum of Scotland.

Unfortunately we did not have much time in hand because of cancelled tram routes, recalcitrant taxi drivers and kilt hire guaranteeing but we did manage to slip in to the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh for an hour.

This is a museum not to be missed. 

Apart from the stunning architecture of the building, the exhibits and displays were fascinating.

The history of telecommunications had me absorbed for some time. I would need a week to do the museum justice and the entrance is FREE.

The usual gripe, however, has to be made to the curators. Why do the printed explanations have to be in such small type, so far away and so dimly lit? It is possible now to cold light a notice in an exhibition case without affecting the temperature of the contents. 
Please sort it out.
