The Museum of Edinburgh occupies a 16th century building, formerly called Huntly House, on the Royal Mile. It covers the history of Edinburgh from the earliest settlement to the present day with various artifacts and displays, including James Craig's original plans for Edinburgh's New Town.

One section shows archaeological finds from Crammond, dating from the time Roman forces occupied east Scotland almost 2000 years ago. Another shows life in the Old and New Towns from the 1760's. On the top floor is an extensive collection of silverware, glassware, pottery made in Edinburgh by various craftworkers down the centuries, as seen in this Silverware Room panorama.
