Lauriston Castle is a 16th-century tower house with 19th-century extensions. The museum lets visitors step back in time to experience what life was like in an Edinburgh middle-class home at the beginning of the 20th century. The collections at Lauriston Castle were assembled by Lauriston’s last residents, Mr and Mrs W. R. Reid, and Mrs Reid’s brother Mr William Barton. The collections are displayed within an interior designed by William Robert Reid.
