NT2573 : Museums are so interesting....

taken 5 years ago, near to Edinburgh, Great Britain

Museums are so interesting....
Museums are so interesting....
....but even the Science and Technology gallery is not interesting enough to distract these youngsters from their smart phones, DXs or whatever.
National Museum of Scotland 2016

The museum reopened in July after a major refurbishment. Part of that involved the Science and Technology Galleries, with balconies on three floors overlooking a central space, now occupied by historic aircraft from the Museum of Flight's collection at East Fortune. From the highest [and oldest] are Pilcher's Hawk [1897]; Slingsby T-12 Gull glider [G-ALPA, 1939-40]; De Havilland Tiger Moth G-AEOL [1930s], originally RAF N9510 until it became a civil aircraft in 1955; Beagle Auster A.61 Terrier [G-ARSL, 1960s]; and a Piper PA-38 Tomahawk [G-BGXB, 1979].
