Exhibitions

Our varied exhibitions programme lures visitors to a converted warehouse, Old Town closes, imposing monuments and a perfectly preserved Edwardian mansion.

The City Art Centre hosts some of the best international touring exhibitions available, covering fine art, photography, design and more. Our museums display both in-house and touring exhibitions, highlighting different aspects of Edinburgh’s history and culture.
