“Check opening days”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I could not visit this museum because I was there on a day when it was not open, a Tuesday - a notice on the door stated it is open only on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (winter opening until 31 March). I have rated it poor because it was not open. Really disappointing as I am unlikely to be in the city again. But then I suppose I should have consulted the website beforehand. However one wonders whether public funds are being well-applied to an institution that is more often closed than open.

“A few hours well spent..”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

A lovely museum and gallery poised in a convenient location very central to the beautiful city of Edinburgh.
Great collection of paintings and sculptures that are well worth seeing. Entry is free too!

“Silver exhibition”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Some beautiful craft work on display in the art gallery, but I didn't get there early enough to spend much time in the museum.

“Wonderful Museum”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

For such a small museum they have used the most of the space they do have with a wide array of exhibits. Incredibly informative with a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.
