The Lower Level of the Gallery building (rooms B1-B7) is now closed to the public until completion of the project in Spring 2019. These rooms will be undergoing major refurbishment to expand and improve the spaces devoted to Scottish art. Many of the artworks from these rooms will be temporarily redisplayed elsewhere within the Gallery building.

Other rooms on the Ground Level (rooms 2-13) and the Upper Level South (rooms 14-18) will, on occasion, be closed temporarily, to allow for the re-hanging of works from elsewhere.

Later in 2017, other rooms will close to the public; specifically, rooms 1, 8, 15, and 16. Details relating to these later room closures will be available here in the future.
