Smith Museum and Art Gallery
Nestling beneath Stirling Castle, in the King’s Park, the ancient hunting grounds of the Stuart monarchs, and now a suburb of opulent Victorian mansions, is the Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum.
Founded in 1874 from the bequest of the artist Thomas Stuart Smith, the Stirling Smith has one of the most important, and least known, Scottish history collections.
The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum is the focus for the history and material culture of the Stirling area.
Scottish history collections, fine art and archaeology are used in the main display called “The Stirling Story” which explores the history of the town over the past Millennium.
A changing programme of temporary exhibitions on a range of
subjects and media, together with lunchtime talks and other events contribute to make the Smith a lively and welcoming visitor attraction.
Other facilities include a café serving lunches and light refreshments, shop, lecture and conference room, free admission, car park and access for wheelchair users.
