New exhibition exploring Edinburgh history opensA museum in Edinburgh is playing host to an exhibition exploring the history of this stunning city from the very beginning.

Titled Foundation Edinburgh – the Story of a City, it has been based at the recently refurbished Museum of Edinburgh and will include a film highlighting the major events from its volcanic beginnings to the present day.

Taken through years of battles, a number of attempted invasions of the city’s famous castle, to the times of Burke and Hare, the beginnings of the Edinburgh festival and the creation of a new Scottish parliament, the exhibition gives visitors one of the most insightful and knowledgeable backgrounds of the Scottish capital found anywhere in the UK.

It represents another fine addition to the amazing cultural landscape in the Scottish capital, which attracts thousands of tourists every year from across the world.

Come and check it out whilst enjoying a break in one of the fine hotels in Edinburgh over the coming months.
