Owner description: Within the historic setting of Edinburgh Castle, accounts of battles lost and won are told through military artefacts and personal collections. Find out about the life of Scots at war, from the First World War trenches to the Home Front, and learn how conflicts, both at home and abroad, have shaped Scotland's image and reputation over the centuries.

Did not expect this gem within the castle, only wish I had done earlier as it was a bit much for my young ones at the end of the day when tiredness and boredom were kicking in. The museum has a really nice flow to it with great exhibitions, I was amazed by the number of Victoria crosses on display. They did not shy away from the darker side of things with an entire section dedicated to prosthetics which is a ballance not routinely found in a place like this, I plan to visit again to spend some more time at certain exhibits.

Located with in the castle grounds, it is a good museum with a good layout of the history of war. Might be too educational for some.
