  • Very poor. In total contrast to the building behind it which has classical work in it of utter beauty and skill. This building is unfortunately full of modern art which looks like a drunk 5 year old tried to do a painting. I understand however that modern art is 'a work' like professional wrestling, in which the seller is simply making money by tricking a 'mark' to believe in a performance. And in that regards I cannot fault the artists as they have rubbish paintings in here for 3 grand. If I could get away with that I'd do it myself. So if you like modern art I'm sure you will love it. If not simply go to building behind for some true classical paintings.
  • Attractive building with carved Egyptian style figures on roof
  • Lots of great art work and free entry, if you are on Princess Street you should really stop in for a visit... you would be mad not to.
  • A lot of interesting exhibitions and plenty of beautiful modern pictures which you can even buy in the academy. Entry is free so I would definetly recommend it.
  • brillian imptessionist exhibition
