The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum, Stirling

The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum, Stirling (must see)

The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum – formerly The Smith Institute – has played a very special part in the history of Stirling since its foundation in 1874. Established by the bequest of artist Thomas Stuart Smith (1815–1869) on land supplied by the Burgh of Stirling, it is an historic public-private partnership which has continued to the present day. It was founded as a gallery of mainly contemporary art, with museum and library reading room for the benefit of the inhabitants of Stirling, Dunblane and Kinbuck. Today, it functions as a gallery, museum and cultural center for the Stirling area. It is the repository for the historical artifacts and paintings of Stirlingshire, at the same time offering exhibition opportunities for contemporary artists. Over twenty community groups meet regularly in its lecture theater; a café and biodiversity garden are among its newest attractions.

Operation hours: Tuesday - Saturday: 10:30 am - 5 pm; Sunday: 2 pm - 5 pm
