‘Visited this museum today. It was absolutely amazing and had an original Picasso and Salvador Dali and lots of other artists. Also some amazing art installations including a rug made of 10,000 red roses. Just amazing. It’s free admission and well worth a visit.’
– The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
Modernism Set In Stone
Both fantastic Edinburgh galleries are set in an expansive parkland teaming with spectacular sculptures by a number of important modernists. And since everything at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is a work of art, even the lawn in front of Modern One is a dramatic “landform” of a serpentine mound reflected in three crescent-shaped pools.
A creative refuel
And to round off the perfect trip down modernism lane, both galleries in the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art have a popular café, making it the ideal spot to stop, refuel and enjoy a tasty bite to eat or much-needed cup of coffee.
