Great museum in a beautiful building just west of the city Centre. Lots to see. From paintings, to modern art, to dinasaurs, to a real airplaine. Great for kids too.

Nice way to spend the day. Lots to see. From modern art to history and animals. It's nice all museums in Glasgow are free. And on the opposite there is Trix put up, also fun to combine!

What an experience! Incredible works of art, an organ recital & an exhibition about identity of indigenous people from around the work were my highlights. Highly recommend visiting.

This is an excellent museum for both adults and children. We went principally as Dippy was on tour but there is a lot to see here. The museum itself is free and is a long, if not excessive walk from the city centre and the...More
