We visited with our 2 young children. We all enjoyed exploring all the exhibitions around the museum and gallery. There were lots of opportunities for the children to interact with the exhibits and explore.

Gorgeous building. Well laid out exhibitions . Free entry, several visits required to get the most from this.
Sorry to have missed Linda McCartney retrospective.

Took the subway to Kelvingrove hall and walked up the road to the grand building that is Kelvingrove art Gallery. A stunning building with a wealth of subjects and history. I was pleasantly surprised by the inside of the Gallery. I was also amazed that it was free entry. If you visit Glasgow this is a must for all ages. Educational, historic, accessible and a great day out. Finished the visit with a cheeky drink in the Brewdog across the road. A thoroughly enjoyable day out.

If you are looking for an informative free place to go on those wet days, then this is well worth a visit. With free access, this museum is situated on two levels with lots of displays on various topics. From ancient bones, paintings, animals and much more, all have good descriptive details which will take you lots of time if everything is to be read.
The only downside and this applies not just to this museum but the area in general, is the parking. It can very difficult to find a space nearby, with lots of residents only parking and of the spaces that are available they are often very popular. If you are prepared to drive about for 10 or 15 minutes you will usually get something, but note most require payment at the meter. Of course several buses do pass the area and the Underground subway is about a 15 min walk away.

A trip to the museum is a must if you’re in Glasgow! I was impressed with the variety of things to see. There is a daily organ recital and even if you aren’t there at the right time, the organ is still a sight to see. The Salvador Dali painting is a highlight along with the Spitfire suspended from the ceiling. There’s something for everybody here and because we were visiting out of season, it was really easy to get to see all the exhibits up close.
