A free Deaf-led BSL tour, enjoy light refreshments in our education rooms afterwards.

The tour will be led in BSL by Christopher Tester, a Deaf Art educator from New York City. There will also be a Deaf volunteer to welcome and meet you.

This tour is part of a brand new regular programme of BSL tours at the National Galleries of Scotland. Tours will take place on the third Sat in the months of Jan, March, May, July, Sept and Nov.

This exclusive new exhibition, which will only be shown in Edinburgh, reveals how the taste for Rembrandt’s work in Britain evolved over the past 400 years. From early beginnings around 1630, it grew into a mania that gripped collectors and art lovers across the country, reaching a fever pitch in the late-eighteenth century. The exhibition also reveals the profound impact of Rembrandt’s art on the British imagination, by exploring the wide range of native artists whose work has been inspired by the Dutch master, over four centuries, right up to the present day.
