The Scottish National Gallery displays a nice collection of European art over the centuries focusing on Scottish artists. All in all I think we spent 2 hours in this museum and liked it a lot. We also liked the descriptions of the artworks, making the visit more interesting. The Staff of the museum was also helpful and super friendly. All in all very interesting!
