Group sessions

Groups of 10 or more adults can book guided tours or self-guided visits to view the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. We can also offer bespoke tours if you have a theme in mind. All tours are led by experienced art educators.

We are not currently taking group bookings at the Scottish National Gallery due to an ambitious project to dramatically improve the way we present Scotland's art. The Gallery remains open and there is a full activity schedule at our other galleries: the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Please give at least two weeks' notice for a self-guided visit and four weeks' notice for a guided tour.

We also offer a range of scheduled events for adults: conferences & seminars, courses & workshops, drop-in events, lectures & talks, music concerts, special events, tours and more.
