So much variety! Wonderfully curated by themes with very accessible information on each item. Very hands on for children - and enthusiastic adults. Fantastic organ concert every day at 1pm (3 on Sundays).

An eclectic mix of galleries from dinosaurs to Spitfires and Rennie Mackintosh to Monet. A beautiful building.

I recently visited Kelvingrove and took the guided tour with Artie. It was a wonderful experience. The tour was insightful. Artie was very knowledgable. I would recommend the tour to any visitors

Visited the Charles Rennie Mackintosh and friends exhibition. Very informative and absorbing. Had a wander around some of the other parts of the art gallery and could spend days there rather than three hours.

This legacy of Glasgow's heyday has eclectic collections, and an active programme of exhibitions; and the staff make themselves visible and helpful (and they're knowledgeable too). The temporary exhibition of tapestries from the Burrell Collection (while the Burrell is closed), is superbly well-done.

Thank Mick J
