A Tale of Two Cities

Edinburgh Castle, 9 December 2015 to 24 December 2015

A Tale of Two Cities tells the story of how the cities of Edinburgh and Nanjing have developed over the centuries. It was created by Edinburgh-based Nomad Exhibitions, in partnership with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland and Nanjing Museum.

Using facsimiles of archival material and interactive digital content, A Tale of Two Cities tells the story of how the cities of Edinburgh and Nanjing (a former capital of China) have developed over the centuries, and investigates the similarities and celebrates the differences.

Located within the castle’s Royal Apartments, the exhibition explores and compares the architectural and urban development of the two great cities, both of which have areas designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It provides insights to the domestic, industrial, educational and cultural lives of each city over the centuries.

This event is included in the normal admission price. Tickets can be bought online in advance to beat the queues or purchased on the day.
