Inspiring Art and Music


We are completely reimagining Aberdeen Art Gallery and Cowdray Hall, leading the city's cultural renaissance.

Our vision is for everyone to be able to experience the power of inspiring art and music. We have embarked upon a once in a generation £30m redevelopment campaign to dramatically improve the Aberdeen Art Gallery and Cowdray Hall buildings complex.

Inspiring Art and Music will:

  • Increase the number of gallery spaces from 11 to 21, to showcase the breadth of Aberdeen's unique collection 
  • Establish a new Special Exhibitions Gallery space to attract the very best visiting exhibitions from around the world 
  • Create a stunning new rooftop gallery space, with roof terraces opening up beautiful city vistas 
  • Transform the Cowdray Hall, retaining its unique acoustic while improving the experience for both performers and audiences 
  • Provide two new dedicated learning suites for schools and learners 
  • Upgrade our ageing facilities to become a 5 star visitor attraction 
  • Sensitively renovate the Remembrance Hall 
  • Restore and modernise the gallery building, making it easier to navigate and enjoy
