Having been brought up close to Kelvingrove park (Claremont terrace) I enjoy returning there, I like to watch the ducks in the river Kelvin, it is much cleaner now compared to my childhood, we took a picnic and sat for half an hour after our visit to the Art gallery and museum

After visiting the museum we stretched our legs around the park. It is beautifully tended, with clear signage. The autumn tree colours were spectacular and the park was being well used by so many people. A credit to the city.

This museum is very good for one that does not charge an entry fee but will accept donations in the boxes at the entrance. There is a change of what is displayed every few months it seems. We particularly love the animal history displays. Would recommend for distracting the children for a couple of hours.
