A creative environment to do business

The National Galleries of Scotland is home to the nation’s world-renowned collection of art housed in five landmark buildings across three distinct sites in Edinburgh.

Special exhibitions complement the collection, and together they continue to be a source of inspiration and knowledge to the nation’s art lovers and to visitors from far and wide, with around 1.5 million people visiting our galleries each year.

As a corporate supporter of the National Galleries of Scotland, you will be the first to hear about all sponsorship opportunities and the unique marketing possibilities they offer. These include:

  • Supporting special conservation projects and helping provide us with specialist materials and highly trained staff to ensure that we can preserve the collection for future generations to enjoy.
  • Funding specific curatorial and research positions, providing the National Galleries of Scotland the opportunity to build on its reputation as a centre for expert academic excellence.

Our Sponsorship Team will work with you to deliver an effective and positive bespoke package that best suits your company’s objectives and budgets.
