Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art
This building was designed by William Burn in the 1820s in the neoclassical style for the John Watson School. Since 1984, the National Gallery of Modern Art has housed a magnificent art collection of which the city is justly proud. On the ground floor there are special exhibition rooms and displays from the permanent collection. Here you'll find American Pop Art, the Glasgow Boys, Rennie Mackintosh watercolors and one small room devoted to works by Ian Hamilton Finlay. The upper level features an impressive collection of early 20th-century international art, representing Bonnard, Vuillard, Matisse, Kirchner, Magritte, Picasso and Miro amongst others. The surrounding parkland contains sculpture by the likes of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, William Turnbull and Anthony Caro. Calm down from the high-brow glory of it all in the cafe downstairs, or in the well-stocked museum shop. Call ahead for more details.
