What Our Visitors Say

"As a teenager I used to visit the Gallery and it was a place of inspiration to me, a place of reflections, silence and peace, an almost reverential space... like stepping into another world. If it is ever raining, which it often is, there is a wee cafe where you can enjoy a nice cappucino." Annie Lennox, 2012.

"Aberdeen Art Gallery is highly recommended. Looks like I'll be getting a later train to Inverness." Alan Davies, 2012.

"An excellent combination of modern technology and maritime heritage in both building and displays."

"[Staff] are very good and very approachable. Their enthusiasm is infectious..."
