Very good informative museum, lovely paintings, full of interesting artefacts of old Scotland. Some interaction and computers were being upgraded when I went, so cannot comment on these.

Lovely building and some excellent exhibits, but there feels like there is more than a touch of nationalist propaganda in some of the descriptions of works.

This is the best museum for all ages. My favourite. Kids always enjoy going. Don't miss St. John of the cross painting and the hanging Spitfire.

Great place for both adults n kids especially if the glasgow weather isn't too good. Can happily spend a whole afternoon wandering round. Good restaurant indoors with reasonable prices or bring your own and picnic outside admiring the beauty of this building and university of glasgow up on the hill. Better still it's FREE!
