Must-see in Ukraine > The National Museum of Scotland welcomes visitors again

The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh reopens this summer after a £46-million redevelopment. The museum will have 16 new galleries displaying more than 8,000 objects.
Many of these will be on show for the first time. Highlights include Sir Alexander Fleming’s Nobel Prize gold medal for the discovery of penicillin, the world’s oldest colour television and specimens collected by Charles Darwin during his voyage on HMS Beagle.

When the museum’s Victorian building reopens on 29 July there will be a new vaulted entrance hall at street level leading to a Grand Gallery atrium. This Window on the World – the UK’s single largest museum installation – is a four-storey, 18-metre-high display of more than 800 objects, from the jaws of a sperm whale inscribed with the world’s largest ‘scrimshaw’ carving and a 12,300-year-old giant deer skeleton discovered in 1819, to one of only four surviving 14th century knights’ helmets.

Other galleries will showcase the work of pioneering Scots who have changed the world with their inventions, the natural world with thousands of zoological and geological specimens including a 1.3-billion-year old meteorite from Mars, and different cultures of the world.

Dr Gordon Rintoul, Director of National Museums Scotland, says: ‘This great museum, with its amazing collection of treasures, spans over 5 billion years and every corner of the globe. The restoration of the magnificent Victorian architecture and the display of many previously unseen objects represents a once-in-a-lifetime transformation of the museum, which will ensure that it continues to inspire, inform and entertain visitors for generations to come.’

The National Museum of Scotland is open daily 10am–5pm from 29 July
