Perth Art Gallery
Verified by us: The gallery is brilliant and we were pleased by access – particularly the user-controlled wheelchair lift at the entrance!
Looking for wheelchair friendly things to do in Perth? Well, Perth Art Gallery is open from Thursday to Monday (please check opening hours on our website).
Come and explore our two permanent displays. Modern Scots tells the story of influential modern Scottish artists and their contribution to 20th and 21st-century art. The works on display cover the last one hundred years and demonstrate the new and innovative ways in which Scottish artists were working and taking inspiration from the past and Europe. The display includes key players in the story of Scottish art, such as Joan Eardley and Sir William MacTaggart, alongside renowned contemporary artists Calum Colvin and Alison Watt. In the Sculpture Court, A New Perspective showcases artworks from 16th to 17th century Europe.
Perth Art Gallery is also home to the popular family area, Hands on Art, as well as the Art Gallery Shop, coffee bar and toilets, including accessible toilet.

A wee note from Accessible Holidays Scotland: Verification was provided by a manual wheelchair user. We parked nearby in the Mill Street East Car Park, a couple of minutes wheel away from the gallery. Access to the gallery is by a concrete ramp, and then a user-controlled lift that bypasses a couple of steps. Once inside, everything is lovely and smooth. There is just one small area of the gallery that is accessed by several steps, but most things in that area can be viewed from the balcony. For those walking, there is some bench seating in one area, approximately half-way around (the gallery isn’t large). Overall it’s a great day out if you’re looking for wheelchair friendly things to do in Perth. Looking for lunch? Why not try Rascals Cafe nearby?
