The National Galleries of Scotland in the capital is beginning a process of phased reopening, starting with the Scottish National Gallery on Mon 17th Aug and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One) on Mon 24th Aug. Reopening of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and Scottish Gallery of Modern Art [Modern Two] is planned for the autumn.

Initially, numbers of visitors in each gallery will be limited, and in order to manage this the Galleries have instituted a free, timed ticketing system: admission is free, but tickets must be booked in advance, with booking now open. The advantage of this is that visitors will get a chance to view the artworks in relative spaciousness.

Further information about visiting can be found on the Gallery’s website.
