Culture is at the very heart of Perth and Kinross. Artists, writers and musicians across the ages have found their inspiration here by the River Tay. Perth Museum and Art Gallery houses one of the oldest museum collections in the UK.

The venue also hosts contemporary touring exhibitions. A warm welcome is extended to all, with free activities in the galleries and an annual programme of events to support the exhibitions. The museum offers disabled access, parking nearby and a gift shop. We are open Monday - Saturday 10 am- 5 pm with Sunday opening April - October 10 am- 5 pm Admission is FREE.

Went to spend some time looking at art, and saw a kooky contemporary exhibition and cool 'taxidermied' animals, among other things! Very friendly staff. Definitely worth going if you just happen to be in Perth :)
