Community & access groups

Groups, tours and workshops

Our buildings are currently closed. We can't wait to open the doors and welcome you and your group to the gallery again as soon as we can.

We invite community and access groups to explore Scotland’s national collection for free through guided or self-led visits and free entry to all paying exhibitions. We also offer a free programme of dementia-friendly workshops, aiming to create a relaxed, welcoming and sociable environment where all contributions are welcomed and valued.

Community and access groups consist of, or work with, people who require additional support in order to visit and access the National Galleries of Scotland. These groups might visit for learning, therapeutic or social reasons. They include disabled people, people who may experience isolation or exclusion and people who may not be able to visit on their own for a variety of reasons.

We also offer a range of regularly scheduled events for visitors with specific access needs.
