The Finale

When the newly refurbished National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street announced they were doing events in the evening for adults only, I squealed with joy.

The RBS Museum Lates went down a treat as far as I can tell. Tickets were £6 if you were lucky enough to get one, the event sold out pretty fast. For your dollar, you get a treated to the museum being filled with exciting goings on such as live music, face painting, bracelet making, silent disco, hungry hippos cocktails and insect holding. Basically… everyone turned into a big kid and it was brilliant.

I’ll definitely be going along to the next one, I hope this experiment keeps up because, with our gang it was definitely a hit.

  1. Sounds like a great night at the museum, made us sad we're not in Edinburgh any more. Your photos of the night are really great too. We ran a photography project for 11/11/11 where we were asking people to contribute up to 11 pictures to our Flickr group ‘Museum Exposure’ (http://www.flickr.com/groups/museumexposure) to help create a photographic time capsule of museum activity around the world on this one day. It would be great if you could submit some of your NMS photos to the project. Thanks! Best wishes, Jenni (from Museum140)
