Scotland's Newest Museum Opens ... 

The new Museum of Scotland is a must-see for those planning to attend ICTE Edinburgh 1999. A striking new landmark in Edinburgh's historic Old Town, the magnificent new Museum of Scotland  presents for the first time the history of Scotland - its land, its people and their achievements.

For a spectacular QuickTime panoramic view of Edinburgh from the rooftop of the new Museum of Scotland, go to Virtual Museum of Scotland and click on "View from the Top". (From the lower panoramic view, those planning to attend ICTE Edinburgh 1999 can locate McEwan Hall on the campus of the University -- number 10 on the marker -- immediately adjacent to the ICTE Conference site on the campus.    To help orient oneself to the views from the museum rooftop, see the Central Edinburgh map courtesy of First Option.)

The just-opened Museum's stunning series of galleries take you from Scotland's geological beginnings through time to the twentieth century. The Museum of Scotland is a striking and impressive achievement, beautifully framed by its surroundings, by Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns, and the landscape beyond. From the Museum’s roof-top garden visitors have an unrivalled view of the historical as well as architectural context of the new building. Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriars Kirk, the Scott Monument, the spires and pinnacles of the city, the sea, and the hills beyond interact with the new museum, reinforcing its role as a central point in the nation’s heritage, a protector of Scotland’s treasures.
