    A good way to spend 30 minutes. Very knowledgeable guides. Book in advance. Only £5 or £3 concessions. Not the easiest place to find. But well worth the effort. A hidden treasure.  more »

    Some works really interesting, a good exhibition and free admission. Worth a visit.

    You have, on the one hand, the interesting collection that consists mainly of paintings, and the reconstruction of the House of architect MacIntosh. That is not very large, but fairly interesting. Hill House, however, gives a better impression. It remains amazing that you cannot photograph in many museums. Similarly here in the House of MacIntosh. In the gallery should it (of course without Flash).

  • There are a few Hunterian Museums. This is opposite the University of Glasgow main building. Closest to the library is The Hunterian Art Gallery , which has Macintosh House inside however with an entrance fee of 5£. The other Hunterian is situated near the University of Glasgow main campus (big Victorian looking building) , where you will find the dinosaur skeleton.
  • Well with a visit as it is free. A collection of many interesting items from different periods throughout history. There is something for everyone.
  • I came here for the Mackintosh house, which is worth a visit. The rest of the gallery is quite small, but there are some good pieces.
  • Small but comprehensive Scottish art gallery. The temporary Skeleton museum was very interesting! Worth a visit, free admission
  • Gorgeous collection of paintings and medals. Masterpieces include Rembrandt, Whistler, Pissarro, Sisley, Rubens and drawings by Mantegna and Parmigianino. Absolutely well organised also the spatial exhibition of the works. The attendants are really kind, besides.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
