The revamped and much heralded National Museum of Scotland has hit two million visitors in the 10 months since its extensive refurbishment, it has been revealed.
After fully reopening on 29 July in 2011 following a £47 million redevelopment, it has cemented its status as one of the leading cultural institutions in Britain and was the most visited attraction outside of London last year according to a recent report by the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.
Dr Gordon Rintoul, director of National Museums Scotland, which runs the museum, said: ‘It is amazing that a number equivalent to four-times the population of Edinburgh has visited us in just over 10 months. The popularity of the museum underlines not just the quality of the experience we have created but also its appeal to a wide audience from both Scotland and internationally.`
