Edinburgh is a great place to visit with your kids. There are loads of fun places to explore and of course, learn. Whether you are into extreme sports, art, science, or walking.

 

The National Museum of Scotland

This is a no brainer, perfect for all ages. It was formed in 2006 with the merger of the new Museum of Scotland, with collections relating to Scottish antiquities, culture, and history, and the adjacent Royal Museum (so renamed in 1995), with collections covering science and technology, natural history, and world cultures.

Midlothian Snowsports Centre

​The Midlothian Snowsports Centre, formerly the Hillend Ski Centre, is the longest dry ski slope in Europe, situated near Hillend near Edinburgh. It is used for skiing, snowboarding, and snowblading, and social use includes lessons for adults and children occurring all year round.

Edinburgh Zoo

Edinburgh Zoo is an 82-acre non-profit zoological park. Built-in 1913, and owned by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, it receives over 600,000 visitors a year, which makes it Scotland’s second most popular paid-for tourist attraction, after Edinburgh Castle.

Carlton Hill

The panoramic views from Calton Hill have astonished and inspired visitors for centuries. Major landmarks can be seen from a bird’s eye view: Arthur’s Seat with the Crags behind Holyrood Palace and the Parliament, Leith and the Firth of Forth, Princes Street in its New Town grid, and the Royal Mile climbing up towards the Castle.

Dynamic Earth

Dynamic Earth (originally known as Our Dynamic Earth) is a visitor attraction in Edinburgh, and also functions as a conference venue. The principal focus of Dynamic Earth is to facilitate a better public understanding of the processes that have shaped the Earth (known as earth science).
