Not bowled over by this and would choose the Hunterian if I was short of time. Limited collection of artwork.

Visited after visiting the MacIntosh House next door. Not sure we appreciated all the art inside, not really art lovers.

A great little museum. Lots of paintings and other bits and pieces. It's attached to the mackintosh museum. It's free, definitely worth a look.

My wife and i went to this gallery to see the comic book exhibit and it was wonderful. A real treat for fans of art, comics and Scottish culture. Brilliant day out.

I particularly liked the sculpture garden out the back of the building. A rare day of sunshine meant that the court was a sun trap and the big... More

..to avoid confusion. The gallery is in a modern, small building but packed with important collections of Whistler, Glasgow Boys and Scottish Colourists. The original Mackintosh House tour (£5.00) is a must for fans, small in number and not too long.
