My friend and I visited for the 19th Century clothing exhibition. Was simply fantastic and some of the frocks were amazing. Staff friendly and we managed to catch the 1pm organ recital. If course, you have the typically overpriced gift shops :-)

I love this art gallery & museum. The setting is gorgeous - Kelvingrove Park in the West End - & the displays are stunning. The building itself must rate as one of the most magnificent art galleries/museums anywhere.

I was living for a while in Glasgow and never really felt like visiting Kelvingrove. It was a great surprise when I finally changed my mind: the museum is great, bigger than I expected, and it is not crowded. There were many different expositions so it was suitable for a big range of interests. Good for an afternoon visit.

Do not walk past this place....a great place with a cosy atmosphere that makes you forget what's happening outside. Go on.....give it a try....you will go back just like my wife and I.

Fabulous. Very interesting. Loved the detail & story of developing colours through the ages. Finishes on 14/2/16. And of course the Gallery itself is full of interesting arts. Plenty of choice in the restaurant & cafes too.

The museum was very spacious, well laid out, and therefore not crowded. The flying heads is very memorable. Beautiful museum inside and out.
