The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is one of the National Galleries of Scotland and is open daily from 10am to 5pm. The admission is free, however a charge may be made for special exhibitions.
The characteristic building has been designed in a French Gothic style and was a gift to the city, made by 'The Scotsman' proprietor J. R. Finaly after the government in London refused to fund the venue.
The museum was established before the building was completed and it hasn't moved into its final destination until 1896, making the Edinburgh gallery the first in the world to be specially built as a portrait gallery!
