Everyone has the power to make a print. It’s one of the most accessible art forms. Now come and experience the print pioneers who have made their mark in the last five hundred years. You will go on a journey from Albrecht Dürer in the fifteenth century right through to contemporary artists like Tracey Emin and Chris Ofili. On the way you will discover how artists have pushed the boundaries in both subject and technique through screen printing, etching, engraving and more.

Big names on show include Hokusai, Andy Warhol, Goya, Rembrandt, William Blake, Elizabeth Blackadder, Paula Rego, Bridget Riley and Pablo Picasso. See the techniques, tools and materials up close – you may even be inspired to give it a go.

Detailed information on accessibility at the National Galleries of Scotland

Our partial Changing Places toilet has all of the facilities of a full Changing Places toilet, and though the floor area meets the overall size requirement (13.54m2 minimum), it is just a little too narrow to be classed as a full Changing Places toilet.

There are a limited number of small lockers available, but there is no space to store large items of luggage.

There is limited on street parking close by including for those with a blue badge.
