This is a bijou gallery with a wonderful marble staircase, which our incredibly ignorant council are proposing to decimate ... they should all be hung, drawn and quartered. This is a beautiful, dreamy historic building with masses of charm, about to be ruined by ignorant and unfeeling people.

I love the art gallery as a place to learn and relax. The shop has a great selection of souvenirs, including prints of many of its paintings. The cafe is a good place to go if you need a break from your wanderings

A nice collection of local and other art - small but some real gems in this gallery. There are quite a few of Joan Eardley's painting in the gallery plus some others such as Piper.

On the ground floor there's not much to captivate but this collection has some real gems. A good selection of Scottish enlightenment portraits, some great Scottish colourist landscapes and still lives and a wonderful collection of watercolours. Its worth coming to Aberdeen just to immerse yourself here

I visit regularly and enjoy visiting, however quite often the same pictures and artworks are always on display. I think the Keepers could do more to change the exhibits. How about showing some of the other sculptures and pictures? What about showing the glassware regularly changing the exhibits.
