Aberdeen Art Gallery

Aberdeen Art Gallery

Aberdeen Art Gallery, Cowdray Hall and the Remembrance Hall complex of buildings have closed for a major redevelopment.

During the building work we're looking forward to welcoming visitors to a continuing programme of art and music at our two museum venues, The Tolbooth Museum and Aberdeen Maritime Museum. Collections will also be seen at other venues in the city and shire and on loan to other organisations in the UK and abroad.

Our new programme of History and Art exhibitions can be seen at Aberdeen Maritime Museum, complemented by a series of expert talks. The Cowdray Hall's popular weekly Lunchbreak Concerts will have a new temporary home at the Aberdeen Citadel with several concerts also taking place at St Andrew's Cathedral.

We are pleased to be working with the National Trust for Scotland to show work from the Collections in a new specially created gallery at Drum Castle. Staff have also been working with the local business community to take contemporary art works to an even wider audience within retail outlets in the city.

Looking further afield curators are involved in an exciting programme which will see works from the Collections on display at home and abroad including the Stanley Spencer Gallery, Cookham, The Fleming Collection, London and Drents Museum in the Netherlands.


We are currently unable to respond to enquiries, requests for access to the collections, loans to organisations or requests for curator-led talks until further notice.

Access to collections and reference materials is not possible as we pack all of our stored collections and create a new storage facility at Granitehill, Northfield, Aberdeen which will open to the public later this year.
