Major refurbishment work
From February to late Summer 2013 the permanent collection spaces at the Scottish National Gallery will be undergoing refurbishment work to make them more energy efficient and to improve their appearance. During this period, some rooms will be closed.
This work is part of a major long-term project, the outcome of which will be refreshed, accessible displays of the permanent collection, with a much greater emphasis on the unrivalled collection of Scottish paintings.
Rooms 1 to 6 on the main floor are currently closed.
The major works in the collection will remain on show in the open rooms. Check out our Must Sees trail for an idea of what’s on the walls.
Just off the IT Gallery in the Gardens Entrance is a small display of works on paper, Drawn by Life: Dutch and Flemish Drawings from the Seventeenth Century, accompanied by a downloadable guide.
The Scottish Collection is also on show as usual in the lower level.
