Opening dates announced for new Scottish galleries

The National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) has announced that its much-delayed Scottish galleries will open to the public in Edinburgh on September 30, 2023.






The National Galleries of Scotland (NGS) has announced that its much-delayed Scottish galleries will open to the public in Edinburgh on September 30, 2023.

NGS has spent £38.6m (US$50m, €45m) creating 10 new galleries and a range of other facilities for visitors at the former Scottish National Gallery.

The project was first announced in 2014 and was going to cost £15.3m and take four years to complete, with costs later rising to £22m.

“The construction of the new galleries was one of the most complex engineering projects undertaken in a heritage building in Scotland; working within the constraints of a World Heritage site, above railways tunnels and excavating beneath a category-A listed building,” said a statement from the NGS.
