Museum of Edinburgh, Canongate

Museum of Edinburgh Review

A must-see if you're interested in the details of Old Town life, this house dating from 1570 is home to a fascinating museum of local history, displaying Scottish pottery and Edinburgh silver and glassware. One of the museum's most impressive documents is the National Covenant, signed by Scotland's Presbyterian leadership in 1639. This "profession of faith" begins with not one, but three verses from the Bible.
