“Fun show.”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

What's not to like? A wonderful and challenging show in a beautiful building. Well worth a look. Helpful staff and good lighting. Shame you can't take photos but I'm sure there is a good reason.

“Art through the ages”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Quite an impressive collection! Enjoyed my visit greatly. The Scottish section was unfamiliar to me but interesting none the less. Great explanations in the museum. The price is right.

“Van Gogh to Kandinsky”
Reviewed 20 December 2012

This venue has some terrific exhibitions. When we visited "Van Gogh to Kandinsky", which happen to be two of my favourite artists. The rooms were arranged into thematic displays, a modern approach to interpreting art. This type of exhibition makes it possible to see art gathered in from galleries all over the world... and life is so short... The gallery is linked to the National Gallery by a shop, restaurant etc below with views out to the terrace on Princess Street. We usually dine there, and can recommend it. All normal facilities such as lockers and toilets.

“Imposing art venue”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

Wonderful exhibitions but the building itself is also a very good example of late 18th century building craft. Don't overlook Queen Victoria on the roof, a statue she gifted as she did not like it !
