Opened in 1829, The Rotunda’s unique circular building is one of the world’s first purpose-built museums.

The design of the building was suggested by William Smith, known as the father of English Geology.

The building is an exhibit in itself – the interior, with its stunning trompe I’oeil ceiling and fascinating gallery, featuring a frieze showing the geology of the local coastline designed by Smith’s nephew, John Phillips, is remarkable.

Scarborough Art Gallery was built in the late 1840s by the Uppleby family and has had a fascinating history. This Italianate villa is one of the finest buildings situated in Scarborough’s beautiful Crescent Gardens.

The gallery houses our permanent collection which has been built up over sixty years through gifts, bequests and purchases to reflect the eclectic mix of the community and the cultural heritage of Scarborough.
