Art galleries & museums

If someone was to calculate a gallery to people ratio for all countries I’m pretty sure Scotland would be top of the list. Our country has countless amazing gallery spaces and studios of all sizes, some of them in unexpected places. Here’s just a small selection – join us on an art experience to discover more!

National Galleries of Scotland (Edinburgh) – If you have some time in Edinburgh, make sure you visit at least one of the national galleries: the Scottish National Gallery, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art or the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. They are open daily and admission is free (as in all Scottish galleries and museums, unless it’s a special exhibition).

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum (Glasgow) – Even if you only have one day in Glasgow, the Kelvingrove is a must see! Stunning architecture and 22 galleries.
