My younger brother was visiting Glasgow and wanted to visit the Macintosh House at the Hunterian Gallery. We thoroughly enjoyed the Macintosh exhibition to which entry was free as it is to the gallery. Sadly photography is not allowed, but there is a reasonably priced guide book available. The Macintosh House does not require very long for a full appreciation... More

We visited here after going to the Hunterian museum over the road. We were pleasantly surprised by the range of exhibits from the Scottish colourists and Glasgow boys to Whistler and Dutch & Flemish painters.

Another art gem in Glasgow. A much smaller gallery but is well worth a visit. You will pay a few quid to go into the Rennie Mackintosh house but the rest of the gallery is very good.

This is a high quality gallery, exhibiting a collection of paintings by the Glasgow Boys, Scottish artists and (particularly) Whistler. It is a very manageable size - you can have a reasonable look at the paintings within the space of an hour. And since it is free, there is no reason not to go! Well worth a visit for any... More

Went to see the Whistlers and works by "The Glasgow Boys." What a great collection in a building that is very unassuming. Museum is free and very relaxed.

This is a delightful small museum with a terrific Whistler collection. The rest of the collection is small but representative of many periods. It is well worth the visit.
