This exceptional collection is housed in one of the city's finest granite buildings, which underwent a landmark transformation between 2015 and 2019. With more treasures on display and vastly enhanced visitor facilities, the Gallery has been been revitalised and re-imagined, ready to be rediscovered - a must-see destination on any visit to the Granite City. Aberdeen Art Gallery is a proud winner of Art Fund Museum of the Year 2020.
Aberdeen Art Gallery is home to one of the finest collections in the UK.

We are proud to care for these treasures on behalf of the people of Aberdeen and to share their stories with all our visitors.
