Opened in 1999 in a former orphanage, the Scottish National Galleries' second modern art gallery, formerly known as the Dean Gallery, stands across the road from its partner, just outside Edinburgh’s Dean Village. Since its opening it has housed the Paolozzi Gift, a collection of works by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi, given to the gallery in 1994. It also has an extensive collection of Dada and Surrealist art and literature. The gallery has a large garden that contains several sculptures, as well as a picnic area for sunny days. For less perfect weather, however, the Café Modern Two inside serves some fantastic light lunches and snacks.
