The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh was formed in 2006 with the merger of the new “Museum of Scotland” and the “Royal Museum”. The joint collections include Scottish antiquities, culture and history,  plus science and technology, natural history, and world cultures. The two connected buildings stand beside each other in central Edinburgh.
