Being free of course you can come and go as you please but whether you've an hour or more you will easily fill the time - lots to see and do at Kelvingrove ; even if it was built facing the opposite way from that which the architect intended!

This is a must see if you come to Glasgow, great for adults and kids alike. If you are lucky you may catch an organ recital - has to be heard to be believed.
