Wonderful art contained within a lovely building. There are some good paintings to view and there is a cafe for a coffee afterwards.

It has quite a lot of things to look. It is the best museum in Glasgow. The building is amazing; it remembers me to the Natural and Science museum in London

The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is a great attraction in Glasgow. Obviously people who love art will go here but its also a great wee walk through the park that's next to the art gallery. There is a café inside the gallery to have a rest after or before ur walk around. The price of the food is good.... More

Although we went as a couple and really enjoyed the exhibitions, this place is also great for kids. There are lots of interactive games for them to engage with. A brilliant trip! I would recommend this... More

This is a fairly stock-standard museum but is good if you need to kill a couple of hours or if you need something to keep the kids occupied. None of the exhibits are overly impressive in either uniqueness or prestige, and the transition from natural history to art to anthropology is somewhat unbalanced, but there is certainly something here to...
