Museum of Edinburgh - New Events Programme

Posted on 7 Jun 2015 by Marion

The Museum of Edinburgh is set in the heart of the Old Town on Edinburgh’s historic Royal Mile, and is steeped in history. As you move through this unique venue you will learn about the story of Edinburgh and explore exhibits. New for 2015, their interactive installations bring Edinburgh’s history alive as never before. A children’s dressing up area helps paint a picture of Edinburgh’s fascinating past.

In 2015 they are offering a colourful and vibrant events programme – there is something for everyone.

Special events include:

  • Uncovering Old Edinburgh
  • An afternoon of Renaissance Viols with the Squair Mile Consort of Viols
  • The Dew on her Plaid: The History and Myths Behind a Selection of Traditional Songs featuring Extraordinary Scottish Women
  • The History of Whisky with Cadenheads

and lectures on a variety of subjects which include:

  • Robert Louis Stevenson and his Literary Networks
  • The Holyrood Art Pottery of Henry Taylor Wyse (1879 - 1951) and the Museum of Edinburgh Collection
  • Relics, Curiosities and Councillors: How Edinburgh got its Museums
