As a family of varying age members, this was a great day out. The exhibitions were very well thought out and displayed. The building itself is a sight to behold and very grand. Each member of our family found their favourite exhibit/artwork and this caused great debate amongst us as to who had the best ‘eye’ for art! Just a wonderful place to visit for everyone.

easily walked around in an hour or two - or you can stay for a whole day and properly absorb some of the finest art Scotland has to offer. Just enjoy.

My wife is an artist. She wanted to see the Impressionists which I admit was a lot smaller part of the collection than we had expected. Still, there was some absolutely fabulous art. And the scale of some of the pieces was mind boggling.

The Scottish National Gallery is a lovely place to visit, especially if the weather is rainy. We enjoyed the museum and will visit again.

The gallery is huge but some notables include the seven stations of Catholism, an early and large Veremeer he painted for his pious mother in law, a self portrait of Rembrant and several amazing Constables and Van Dykes.
