Have fun at the Museum of Edinburgh
Brought to my attention by the Edinburgh Evening News, the shows are called At Home with Mrs Doig and run hourly from 11:00 till 15:00 BST, offering anyone who decides to give it a whirl a rare glimpse into the world of 1700s Scottish life. Can you imagine? I'd love to go back in time, it's one of the inventions that I just cannot wait for (Doc Brown, where are you?), although I'm not entirely sure what I'd do first. I'd probably hunt out my parents and find out what they were actually like as young'uns.
Anyway, you'll also be privy to some perhaps hitherto unknown information regarding what was demanded by society at the time of the Auld Reekie and, if this doesn't quite satisfy your need to find out more, coming back to the city in May or September could also prove to be a good wheeze, as the Assembly Rooms will be considering Georgian dress and etiquette. Book a place now, I would, just to avoid any disappointment.
While in the vicinity, make sure you check out the Museum of Childhood as well. This is something that certainly appeals to me and is apparently a well received by everyone, irrespective of age. You'll get to have a peek at toys and games from all over the world and from a variety of different periods.
