Edinburgh is a city full of history and treasured items. These items are all around us; some we may pass every day, some are small, some are large, some are architectural. Some you won’t have even known about and others you will.

Edinburgh’s 101 objects is a new visitor experience which brings these great treasures to the fore providing fresh perspective on the city’s rich narrative of history, culture, heritage and everyday life. Each of the 101 objects has been carefully chosen for both their personal intrigue and wider role in the compelling story of the city with over 80% being free to visit.

2017 is a year worth getting excited about as we celebrate our 230th anniversary!

It was 1781 when a competition was launched to design a new Assembly Rooms for Edinburgh’s New Town, that itself celebrates its 250th Anniversary. Architect John Henderson was selected as winner of the competition and in 1783 the foundations of his revised designs were laid.
