If you need to take a break, there are seats throughout the galleries and portable folding stools that you can take with you – just ask if you’re unsure.
Food and drink
For the safety of the artworks, eating and drinking in the galleries is not allowed. The grounds of Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art also make a perfect picnic spot. Princes Street Gardens, next to the Scottish National Gallery, is also a great place for a picnic. Children are also welcome in all our gallery cafés.
Access for buggies and wheelchairs is available at the main entrances of the Scottish National Gallery, Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Modern One. For the Academy Building and Modern Two, please use the back entrance. All galleries have lifts.
We have lockers available (£1/£2) and buggies are welcomed as are baby carriers.
There is pay and display parking at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Charges apply. The Scottish National Gallery and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery are served by city centre parking.
