This sculpture park and contemporary art gallery is located near Wilkieston and is a unique attraction with a variety of indoor and outdoor exhibits.
Jupiter Artland is an award-winning contemporary sculpture garden located just outside Edinburgh. Founded in 2009 by philanthropist art collectors Robert and Nicky Wilson, Jupiter Artland has grown into one of Scotland’s most significant arts organisations, with an international reputation for innovation and creativity, in 2016 this was recognised by a nomination for ArtFund’s Museum of the Year.
Set over 100 acres of meadow, woodland and indoor gallery spaces, Jupiter Artland is home to over 30 permanent and unique site-specific sculptures from artists Phyllida Barlow, Christian Boltanski, Charles Jencks, Anish Kapoor and Antony Gormley, as well as a seasonal programme of carefully curated exhibitions and events from a plethora of artists, both emerging and established.
Beyond its status as ‘museum’ or ‘gallery’, Jupiter seeks to be a more vital institution, one in which education and outreach is at the heart of its ethos; our belief is that art, and its transformative power, is for everyone, and our aim is to engage with every single child in Scotland, by offering free school visits throughout the year.
There are paths leading around the entire site, which are suitable for most outdoor wheelchair users. However as they are not tarmac paths they can be susceptible to extreme weather conditions.
Due to the positioning of the artworks, some paths don’t go right up to each artwork but provide a view of each piece (with some exceptions). We suggest sensible footwear is worn in all conditions as some visitors may find some areas difficult to access.
The café and Steadings galleries are both fully wheelchair accessible via a ramp. There is step-free access to the Ballroom Garden via the terrace in the Steadings area and wheelchair access to the Ballroom Gallery via a ramp.
Free touch tours and access for blind and visually impaired groups can be organised through the learning team. For more information, please contact email@example.com
