Walking around Edinburgh, you get to the National Museum of Scotland and you feel like visiting it. Its construction was started in 1861 and proceeded in phases, with some sections opening before others had even begun construction. The original extent of the building was finished in 1888. It contains collections covering Science and Technology, Natural History, and World Cultures.
What about you? Would you like to visit it?
At the end of the session, you will have:
- known a little bit more about the pound sterling, the British currency,

Continue with your posts on Twitter (#taskposter and #projectedinburgh). Have you ever used the British currency? Would you like to visit the National Museum of Scotland? Any current exhibition?
In this session, there is information about the challenge of this project.
Remember that the National Museum of Scotland must be part of the route at your Google Sites map.
