Impressive Museum
Kelvingrove Gallery was built to house the 1901 International Exhibition. This red sandstone building still provokes strong reactions today and most people in Glasgow either decidedly love it or loathe it. According to local legend, the gallery was built back to front by mistake, but this is just a myth - it was intended to face the river rather than the road. The collection within, ranges from local historical art to Rodin sculptures, natural history specimens of varying interest and a Storm Trooper costume from the original Star Wars films. Admission is free. In 2007 a major remodel was completed, making Kelvingrove even more of a must see Glasgow attraction, than it was before. There are exciting new exhibitions, with a special emphasis on involving youngsters, so bring the whole family and head for a fun filled educational visit.

Original prints by established and new names, both local and international, are on display and for sale at this specialist gallery, founded in 1972. If you'd like a Scottish injection to your art collection, this is the place to visit as it's one of the UK's biggest publishers of original prints. Galleries one and two are purely exhibition spaces but gallery three is a commercial outlet, selling prints, etchings and lithographs by over 300 artists. A workshop is also on the premises and anyone who has sufficient experience in printmaking is allowed to use it.

Hidden behind the Usher Hall and the Traverse Theatre, these two sister galleries are recent additions to Edinburgh's burgeoning art scene - and very smart they are too. The smaller of the two galleries lends itself well to exhibitions of paintings, whilst the larger is great for mixed shows. The ethos is predominately contemporary, with local and new artists featured in changing exhibitions. All of these items are for sale. It is not open permanently - check that there's a show on before arranging a visit.

A warm, fun atmosphere and helpful, friendly staff make this center a real treat for the uninitiated and experienced brass rubber. Celtic designs and informative guides provide artistic inspiration and easy to use kits are available to get you started. The ecclesiastical location, in the Trinity Apse of the former Gothic Trinity College Church (founded around 1460), enhances the soothing nature of the activity.

Tucked away in the former Holyrood Free Church, Queen's Gallery is an art gallery exhibiting the Royal Collection. After becoming redundant as a church in 1915, the building was used as a storeroom. Later, it was converted and opened in 2002 as a gallery by Queen Elizabeth II.
