I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. The museum has a great collection--I particularly enjoyed the Charles Rennie Mackintosh items. There was a special exhibit that was well worth visiting. I would go back the next time I'm in Glasgow.

Been here so many times but never get bored, so much to see for free. Great educational day for yourself & the kids. Nice restaurant downstairs, quite pricey but food is good with great views. Coffee shop on the ground level which is more reasonable. Free entry but you can leave a donation if you like.

A museum so full of curios it was difficult to know where to start. We really enjoyed poking around the upper galleries and loved the heads installation.

Glasgow is a city to be discovered and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery is one of its jewels. It is both an architectural delight as well as a repository of one of the finest municipal collections ever. And there is more than good Scottish art. There is a very fine collection of significant French Impressionist paintings. Dali's emotion-charged and, initially, highly... More
