  • Love this place. The space is amazing! And we went for the science festival! Which was fantastic
  • I don't think it has nothing to do with arts..and it's simple when talking with fellow painters foreigners or locals the answer is to exhibit in this Center either you need an economic mentor or whatever..and when you sudmit all information being asked the answer is not so kind or promoting arts:we carry exhibitions of locals painters...
  • We visited during science festival with my 4 year old son. He enjoyed activities and workshop. He got to many new experience and enjoyed workshops. Good job team.
  • Top Tip: Get creative in their ArtSpace and experiment with art materials to create your own landscapes, collages and portraits. Head along on on Saturdays between 2pm and 3pm for their free hosted art sessions for even more messy fun.
  • I went here to see "A sketch of the universe" display and it was right up my street. Good lay out and not too much of a walk to see everything. There is a cafe on the ground floor, it is a bit pricey so I never ate here.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
