City Art Centre
Enjoy a visit to the City Art Centre, a main Edinburgh art gallery with one of the best collections of Scottish art. We show interesting exhibitions from our own collections and from all over the world. We can also tempt you with an attractive shop located on the ground floor.
The City Art Centre has a busy programme of exhibitions which change regularly to suit the interests of our visitors. People come to see favourites from the City’s nationally Recognised collection of Scottish art; new work from local or international artists or exhibitions from other countries. Exhibitions of historic and modern photography, contemporary art and design, architecture and the built environment are staged in a rolling programme. We have shown Egyptian and Roman objects and even featured artwork and costumes from the Star Wars films.
About the City Art Centre in Edinburgh
The City Art Centre is an impressive nine storey former warehouse in the centre of Edinburgh. Originally constructed between 1899 and 1902, as part of the Scotsman newspaper buildings, it was converted to gallery use in 1980 and houses light and airy exhibition galleries over six floors.
