The generous support of the People's Postcode Lottery allows the National Galleries to reach a wider public across Scotland and helps us to make spectacular exhibitions and acquisitions for the enjoyment and inspiration of visitors of all ages.
The National Galleries of Scotland look after one of the world's finest collections of Western art ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day including Scotland's national collection of Scottish and international fine art and photography.
NGS recognises that it has responsibility to encourage as many people as possible to use and enjoy the collection. The organisation tries to create a dynamic, user-friendly institution. It actively seeks to engage with audiences and bring the collection to life. This applies to both visitors to the Galleries and wider audiences across the world via education and outreach programmes and an award winning website.
The charity has 3 galleries in Edinburgh
the Scottish National Gallery
the Scottish National Portrait Gallery
the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
and two partner galleries
Duff House in Banff
Paxton House in the Scottish Borders
Director General of the National Galleries of Scotland, John Leighton said:“The National Galleries of Scotland houses some of the greatest works of art in the world and we use these collections to inspire learning, enjoyment and creativity in people of all ages and from all backgrounds. The People's Postcode Lottery is a fantastic partner for us in our efforts to reach out to wider audiences across the country and to encourage as many people as possible to benefit from access to these great national treasures.”
Entry to the permanent collections of the National Galleries of Scotland is free. To help the galleries remain accessible to all, please sign up to play the People's Postcode Lottery.
