Located on Royal Exchange Square, in William Cunninghame of Lainshaw's imposing 1778 townhouse, the Gallery of Modern Art's monumentalism is offset by the traffic cone that's usually perched on the head of the equestrian statue of the Duke of Wellington located out front. The Gallery hosts major exhibitions by 20th and 21st century artists, and is the most-visited modern art gallery in the country. Besides its major collection of modern art, the gallery has a lending library full of books on art and design.

In 2016, a restoration project was undertaken which included cleaning, restoring, and reinstating the clock tower and weather vane.

GoMA is conveniently located for both Queen Street and Central Stations, and Buchanan Street Underground is only a few minutes away. There are multiple bus stops on the near-adjacent Union Street.
