- 30th July − 6th November 2011 | Modern One (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art) | £7 (£5)
Set in extensive parkland and sculpture gardens, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art lies to the west of Edinburgh’s City Centre. The Modern One building, designed in 1820s, was originally a school. In 2004, it won the Gulbenkian Prize for Museum of the Year for its dramatic land-sculpture Landform by Charles Jencks.
The gallery presents regular exhibitions and accommodates a very impressive collection of works dating from the late 19th century to the present: including works by Matisse, Picasso, Warhol, Damien Hirst, Lucien Freud and the Scottish Colourists.
Open daily, 10am-5pm (6pm for August only).
Last entry to the show is 30 minutes before closing time.
There is wheelchair access to all parts of the Gallery. There is also a specially adapted toilet and lift (although the toilet is not suitable for larger motorised wheelchairs).
