We didn't have much time to spend here so we only looked at the ground floor, but there was an interesting range of modern paintings and sculpture, plus a large exhibit of silver objects from a range of time periods. The war memorial section is also very interesting, and contains a selection of classical sculptures.

The other exhibits sounded interesting -- it's a pity we only had an hour to spare!

Thank Mandark

We visit here at leasts once a year, especially when the Aberdeen Artists exhibition is on and find this to be an extremely good gallery. Lots of interesting displays.

This is more than a place to fill time on a wet day - it's a world class collection of paintings, including works by many of the best known artists of the 18th to 20th centuries. To mention just a few - Renoir, Millais, Reynolds, Lowry, Vettriano. We easily filled an afternoon in the upstairs rooms alone, between flights to and from Dyce airport. There's a lot more too, such as the exhibition of Aberdeen silver currently on show, if you have time.
