Some of the wonderful Lewis Chessmen, in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
The rest are in the British Museum, and I've also seen one in the Viking Museum in Denmark.
The thinking is that as they were found in Scotland, they should all be together in Scotland.

We were hoping also to see the Mineralogy display at another museum, but didn't manage to make it.
Here are some photos :
