Do you love exploring Aberdeen Art Gallery? Despite lockdown, you can still take a look round the newly revamped attraction – virtually.
A new smartphone app guides virtual visitors around the corridors of the gallery for two-and-a-half hours and highlights 50 pieces.
The app – called Discover Aberdeen Art Gallery – is available on Smartify and also includes a tour voiced by curators at the museum.
It’s the latest technological advance for the popular tourist attraction, which last year reopened following a multi-million revamp.
The museum, regarded as one of the UK’s finest, it features a sculpture court, war memorial, Remembrance Hall, and a number of different galleries.
The virtual tour starts with some background on the history of the Art Gallery itself, before moving on to focus on specific artworks. These include For You by Tracey Emin, which can be viewed on the ground floor of the gallery in the sculpture court, and Mahogany Dining Table, by an unknown maker which is in Gallery Six.
The tour also features the voice of Aberdeen artist Gordon Burnett, whose Forget Them Not monument stands in the Remembrance Hall.
Smartify can be downloaded for free from both the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android smartphones.
