The National Galleries of Scotland comprises three galleries.
Scottish National Gallery project
While the Scottish National Gallery is currently undergoing a major transformation, we want to keep our collection accessible to as many people as possible.
Due to the ongoing work:
- We will accept one group per day of up to 35 people for guided visits (both schools and adult groups)
- There is currently no bus drop-off point so you will need to travel by foot or public transport
- There may be some noise disruption during your visit
