Temporary room closures

At the National Galleries of Scotland, we maintain ever-changing displays of artworks from your national collection. To do this, we occasionally need to close some gallery rooms so that we can add new artworks from our collection. This page gives you an overview of changes that are taking place over the coming weeks.

Scottish National Gallery

Some rooms at the Scottish National Gallery are closed while we create exciting new spaces for our Scottish art collection and a larger and more accessible lift.
