We’re a great meeting place where you can experience Scotland’s rich cultural heritage.
In the Storytelling Court you will find an interactive Storywall which is always enjoyed by children (and adults too!)
Find Greyfriars Bobby; catch the frog; meet Nessie, the Gruffalo and Wee Willie Winkie; and discover traditional Scottish tales. You can also listen to excerpts from Edinburgh’s most famous storyteller, Robert Louis Stevenson, and we always have a free exhibition on display from artists across Scotland and beyond.
Swap your own stories in the Story Cafe over some delicious home baking and great coffee.
Browse our bookshop in the medieval luckenbooths of John Knox House and see if you can spot our dragon’s nest and time capsule hiding among the books.
