Fodor's Expert Review Aberdeen Art Gallery

Around Union Street Museum/Gallery
Northeast Scotland's most important art gallery reopened in November 2019 with the completion of its much-delayed renovation and expansion, giving it seven new exhibition spaces so that over 1,000 of its treasures can be displayed. There's also a penthouse gallery hosting three touring exhibitions each year. The collection contains excellent paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, porcelain, costumes, and more, from 18th-century art to major contemporary British works by Lucien Freud and Henry Moore. Scottish artists are well represented in the permanent collection and special exhibits. Local stone has been used in the interior walls, pillars, and the central fountain, all designed by the acclaimed British sculptor Barbara Hepworth.
