Community & access groups


Groups: tours and workshops

We invite community and access groups to explore Scotland’s National Collection for free through guided or self-guided 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.

We require at least two weeks' notice for self-guided visits and at least four weeks' notice for a guided tour.

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.

Through our programme of regularly scheduled events, we also offer activities suitable for disabled individuals, including those visitors who are deaf or hard of hearing, have visual impairments and those living with dementia.
