What's it about? Exhibits from Scotland and the world from Pictish stones and ancient chessmen feature in this great free museum. Kids can get hands-on by designing a robot, test-driving a Formula One car or meeting Dolly the cloned sheep, while the Discover Zone lets them re-enact Vikings and Romans.
