One of my favourite things in the world is acting silly and childish, so when a friend from Stirling invited me to join her and her children for a day out in Edinburgh, I couldn’t resist! After all, I know that I get to act silly and childish when I’m with my little friends!
And when I was given the opportunity for input on the day’s activities, I couldn’t help but suggest the Museum of Childhood on the Royal Mile. After all, it’s a museum that actively encourages its visitors to act silly and childish as they play with the interactive displays.
And so, yesterday was spent acting silly and childish in the Old Town, and it was so much fun. (Helped greatly by the fact that my little friends are always so excited to see me!)
I arrived a bit early so spent a little while on the Royal Mile visiting another friend as well as St Giles’ Cathedral before meeting up with my little friends. We then started with a quick trip to Edinburgh Castle (by way of a few owls) before heading down the Mile to the Museum of Childhood.
I’m not going to share all of the cathedral or castle photos right now, because I’ve realised that I need to go back to both (separately) on days when I can really explore them. But I’m sharing several from the museum in the hopes of sparking some wonderful memories from your childhood, as the displays did for me.
