If you know the story of ‘Greyfriars Bobby’, you will be thrilled to see his collar and feeding bowl, and the original plaster model for the bronze statue in Candlemaker Row. One of the museum’s great treasures is the National Covenant, signed by Scotland’s Presbyterian leadership in 1638, while the collections of Scottish pottery and items relating to Field Marshal Earl Haig are of national importance. The museum also features Edinburgh silver and glass, and a colourful collection of shop signs.
