  • Exhibitions and art on five floors. Often free, but also a few "pay to enter" exhibitions throughout the year. Also usually plays key role in science festival. Good value cafe on ground floor.
  • Nice building and very helpful staff , displays a bit boring tho looking a little tired , I think the Art centre would benefit from displays of local artists work as some of the shops in the city had amazing work available of all genres . We liked the Edinburgh national gallery it had some beautiful paintings and a wonderful gift shop.
  • Five floors of art! If you like art galleries, you'll love this one. I loved the Edinburgh Alphabet exhibition! Would have liked to spend more time here, but had to catch a train.
  • Exhibition, lecture and workshop space over five floors (with offices on the sixth). There's a separately run cafe on the ground floor a shop. Travelling exhibitions are a regular feature but other gallery space is devoted to the extensive collection of Scottish art held in the secure basement levels.
  • Love this place. The space is amazing! And we went for the science festival! Which was fantastic
