DCA's main entrance on Nethergate opens onto our Ground Floor. Here, you'll find our Box Office, where you can book tickets, pick up information, and make enquiries about our events and facilities. Our Shop is nearby, filled with beautiful products from Scottish designers and artists. 

The Ground floor is also home to our two Galleries, where you can see the latest exhibitions, and our Create Space, a free space to be creative and get inspired, open to all ages.
