The Queens Gallery

Housed in the former Holyrood Free Church and Douglas Gordon’s School, between the Palace of Holyrood House and the Scottish Parliament building, the Queen’s Gallery was opened in 2002 as part of the Golden Jubilee celebrations. It is designed to show even the most delicate works of art from the Royal Collection in a programme of changing exhibitions.  Depending on the exhibition, visitors can see paintings, drawings, watercolours, furniture, ceramics, clocks, silver, sculpture, jewellery, books, manuscripts, prints and maps, arms and armour, fans, and textiles that have been selected by monarchs over the past 500 years.

With each exhibition, the Queens Gallery offers a verbally described tour and an amplified tour.  Both are devlivered by staff from the learning team and are tailored for small groups introducing key works and themes from the exhibition.
