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 (13-14 December)

Scottish National Gallery (13-14 December)

In order to prepare our annual Turner in January display we will be closing gallery 9 (where we are currently showing Post-Impressionism) and gallery 18 (where we show Impressionism) on Monday 13 December. During this time we will be re-hanging the Post-Impressionist works alongside the Impressionist works in gallery 18 and that gallery will re-open on Wednesday 15 December. Gallery 9 will remain closed until January 1 2022 when it will open with our annual Turner in January display.

This annual exhibition will showcase all of the 38 watercolours by Turner that were given to the National Galleries of Scotland in 1900 by the art collector Henry Vaughan.
