This place has a great atmosphere. The displays are thought provoking. I was very impressed with their "wellness" approach to visitors and the consideration of anyone who might feel uncomfortable during their visit. I wish all venues had this approach.

This used to be a cracking art gallery, and I remember spending many hours as a youngster enjoying the exhibits. It's such a shame they lost most of them. I wonder if they ever will find them again. Visited on Weekend Wait time No wait Reservation recommended No … More

Went to see Louise bourgeois exhibition, brilliant art work. Unfortunately no merchandise available and very little promotion, I think the gallery are missing an opportunity. Given that aberdeen is the only city in the UK as far as I'm aware that has this amazing art work on display, I am surprised at the lack of publicity for such a brilliant artist.

The museum itself is beautiful, exhibits were decent. They had a great interactive area for the kids, which was awesome. The ENTIRE museum reeked of fish due to the Cafe below. I honestly feel like giving it one star because of this, but I understand that it might nor bother some people. For the rest of you with a nose, godspeed Visited on Weekday Wait time No wait … More

Captivating.A veritable jewel nestled in the heart of Aberdeen. The interesting fusion of modern and neo-classical architecture alone is worth the visit, but the true marvel lies within its walls. A fantastic and vast collection of works from Scottish, British, and European artists await your admiration. Imagine gazing upon Claude Monet's serene views of Normandy, marveling at the vibrant hues of the Scottish Colourists, or contemplating the abstract forms of Barbara Hepworth.Adding to this already impressive lineup is a captivating yet wonderfully perplexing 2024 exhibition of Louise Bourgeois' sculptures and drawings. Her works showing deep symbolism, will undoubtedly spark your imagination.Plus, entry is free for all, making it an irresistible destination for Art lovers and curious minds alike.A delightful and enriching experience.

Had a fantastic time at the Aberdeen Art Gallery. A beautiful space, with different pieces than a museum or a modern art gallery. I really enjoyed the collections on display, fantastic work in making each room feel different and interesting. Great gift shop too. Super friendly staff!

I went there a little bit late as I went an hour before closing. The museum was very well organized and different from what I've seen before. The galleries are spacious, and well lit, it felt refreshing. It was also very kid friendly as there are multiple activites for them to do. You can find spots to breast feed and you have free period pads and tampons in the toilets

Aberdeen Art Gallery is a wonderful place where both historic and modern artwork are exhibited. It is located at schoolhill, Aberdeen, about 15 to 20 minutes walk from the bus and train terminal. As of the time I visited, there were 22 art galleries with artwork from around the globe spanning about 700 years. No advance booking is required, and admission was free. It also has a cosy cafe on the top floor for dining and relaxing. The staff are friendly and courteous. Each gallery has a unique story and theme. Photographs are permitted for personal use. However, flash photographs and selfie sticks are not allowed. There is space for street parking, but the building had wheelchair access. It is really worth visiting.
