Visited to see the new temporary exhibition. Amazing body of work. Very thought provoking and interesting. Rest of displays are very good although they are looking a bit dated and tired. Staff excellent and very friendly

Staff are always polite and helpful. The Pictish sculpted stones display is interesting. The re-created street scene brings a special historical atmosphere.
