Here are 10 Scottish art galleries and museums that will be open over the May Bank Holiday weekend

Many of us will be enjoying an extra day off this weekend courtesy of the May Bank Holiday on Monday.

Some of the Scottish galleries and museums open this weekend.

While we’re hoping the weather will see us able to enjoy the great outdoors, it’s fair to say that the Scottish climate in early May means anything could happen.

Luckily, with restrictions continuing to ease there will be plenty of indoor options for dreaded rainy days.

While the Modern One gallery at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art doesn't open until the middle of May, Modern Two has reopened, giving you the chance to see the blockbuster exhibition 'Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema', featuring the special effects wizard's memorable monsters from film like Clash of the Titans and Jason and the Argonauts.
