A portrait of Scotland

In Museum [Insider], Museums, new content on August 11, 2010 at 5:40 pm

Opened in 1899, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery is a magnificent example of Arts and Crafts architecture. But now, the world’s first purpose-built portrait gallery is undergoing a £17.6 million refurbishment and redevelopment. The gallery is closed to the public and is due to reopen to the public in November 2011.

Behind-the-scenes photographs and information about the development of the project – including details of the redevelopment of the building, the works in progress, fundraising and ideas about interpretation – are available in a new article on Museum [Insider] today.

This piece is going into the next version of the new Museum [Insider] ebook, the second volume of which is published in early September.
