Such a great mix of old masters, historical images and artefacts of Glasgow, especially the work of Charles are nice Macintosh, all under one roof and available free to all. Brilliant!

Well thought out museum/art gallery that can be viewed in a few hours. The collections are a good cross sample of scottish history, french, scottish and dutch art, and natural history. The building has an impressive history too.

There are several excellent paintings in this museum. It's a "must-see" if staying in Glasgow for a day or more.

In my case it was well worth a return visit after a gap of approx 40 years. It is still an outstanding building and it had a great variety of interesting and well presented displays and presentations. A great place to take visitors from other countries to see some excellent architecture and exhibits from around the world whilst also learning... More

Bit late in reviewing but my daughter and I visited here in June 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Allow plenty time as there's loads to see. We laughed, we ooohed and ahhhed and even shed a tear - what a great way to spend a few hours.

A wonderful art gallery and museum on the banks of the river Kelvin in Glasgow, well worth taking your time wandering around to see the items on display. It is worth going for the lunch-time organ recitals alone.

Every visitor to Glasgow should go here. Beautiful building, stunning setting. Good places to eat/drink nearby. Lovely in summer. Oh and it's educational too.

This is a great place to get some basics on Scottish History, and see some great art! I would also recommend staying to hear the organ recital on days they advertise it. It's also FREE!

Really good day out for the family. Enjoyed it very much especially the Egyption section as I have a vast interest in this topic. Looking forward to going back!
