  • A very interesting museum all about money, currently etc. With real two million pounds on display in cancelled twenty pound notes it's fun to see how much space it takes. There's also a shop and friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting background of the Bank of Scotland. Cool to see £1 million in notes! We got to strike a coin each when we were there as an event was on - a good wee souvenir from our visit!
  • Very friendly staff and genuinely interesting exhibits. Stayed for about an hour having a look around. Gift shop reasonably priced also (especially when you consider the there's no admission fee).
  • Interesting museum about the history of the Bank of Scotland and the money itself. Admission is free and worth a visit if you are interested in the topic.
  • Great place to learn about money history, went with my 6 year old son. Small place but fun, my son enjoyed doing the building the bank with blocks puzzle on a timer.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
