We have partnered with National Museums Scotland to offer guests an exciting opportunity to get up close with woolly mammoths.

The Mammoth Package includes:-

  • accommodation in a double or twin-bedded room
  • tickets to the Mammoths of the Ice Age exhibition,
  • unique in-room amenities including a chocolate Mammoth lollypop with a special Mammoth milk-shake
  • a Mammoth badge, wall planner and activity leaflet

The Mammoths of the Ice Age exhibition has travelled to the National Museum of Scotland for the first UK showing of this interactive and family-friendly exhibition which was created by the world-renowned Field Museum in Chicago.  This major exhibition explores the remarkable animals of the Ice Age and showcases an extensive collection of significant objects from this era, from real woolly mammoth hair and preserved dung to rare mammoth fossils and enormous life-size replica models.  The exhibition, which runs until 20th April 2014, is accompanied by a series of fun events and activities for children at the National Museum of Scotland.

Further family highlights include a complimentary late check-out (up to 4pm), a complimentary children’s in-room movie, children under 12 eat free in One Square, plus access to the swimming pool in One Spa.  As an added incentive, the hotel will offer a 50% discount on a second room that is booked for a family.  The ticket costs for the Mammoths exhibition will be added on at point of reservation (see below).

The Mammoth Package starts at £205 per room per night.  To book call the Resort Sales Team on (0131) 229 9131 or email grandedinburgh@sheraton.com
