I visited here on 9th February 2016 and was truly impressed with it. The architecture of the building is stunning. Great layout inside, great art exhibitions, knowledgeable staff. There is a coffe shop, a quiet library, and a good small gift shop. Great location in Argylle Street near to Queens Street Station. Well worth a visit.

Visited GOMA on 10 Feb 2016 and wish I hadn't. Complete waste of time and I think begs the question why is funding money being wasted. However, to be fair it does have some things in its favour which are: 1. Outside of the building is quite impressive 2. It is free to enter 3. If it is raining then... More

I don't really get modern art but whenever I'm in the city with some time to spare I try and visit this museum. I love the building its housed in, free entry helps and I keep hoping I'll find something stimulating and interesting. Visited yesterday and once again I was disappointed. Two of the galleries were closed, which left the... More

Wasn't too impressed by the exhibition on the ground floor - preferred the Scottish art on the upper floors. Enjoyed a nice cup of coffee and a fruit scone though.

It is clean, warm, decent and quiet place, although it is small. I think it deserves more content, once it is also a beautiful building in the centre of Glasgow

Stopped here during a recent visit to Glasgow and enjoyed the exhibits very much. In an old bank building, the galleries are curated with a nice mix of sculpture and paintings and a good way to spend an hour or so.

Great galleries in a classical building and free. Innovative exhibitions. Good cafe and WiFi. Pity there's no lockers.

I'm a fan of modern art so was keen to look around the place but clearly disappointed. A volunteer guide offered her services but she clearly did not do her homework and forgot a lot of information. She also doesnt seem keen to tour us around as she kept asking if we like to roam around ourselves! We did and... More

The collection here is cool, but don't budget more than an hour or so to check out the exhibits. For such a big reputation, it's an awfully small gallery.
