  • Kelvingrove is an outstanding eclectic museum. We very much enjoyed the focus on Scottish history, culture, flora and fauna. We especially enjoyed the organ recital. Easy walk from the subway.

  • I like that this museum is free like our museums in our home city DC. This museum was a lot like the National one in Scotland with the stuffed wildlife and Egyptian exhibit and children’s exhibits...

  • What a great place. Amazing building. Full of treasures, brilliant selection of art work, historical treasures and natural history sections. All displayed clearly with easy to understand information. Best selection we’d seen in one place for a long time. Thoroughly enjoyed our day here. Good cafe too. Highly recommended
  • Fantastic Museum. Perfect for an afternoon in Glasgow. Free of charge. You get the best bits of Egypt, Natural History, Natural history of Scotland, History of Glasgow and a pretty neat collection of paintings. I was delighted as it was neither heaving packed or boring. Could take my time and everyone respected each other Thank you!
  • A wonderful way to spend a Summer afternoon. Walk through the park to the museum and back again. Lovely. The dinosaurs are not local but it's still fun to walk under and around. The art is spectacular and sometimes amusing. Something for everyone over age 7.
  • Family day out and had a great time. Lots to see and do. Very interesting displays. Got to hear the massive organ playing live which was a fab experience for the kids. Staff are friendly and helpful. We visited the cafe on the ground floor and it was very good value for money.
  • Beautiful place to visit, unbelievable that entry is free, we spent 2 hours looking around and I don’t think we saw it all, definitely worth the visit. The bridge over the river at the back of the museum is also really nice it has big statues and there’s a small pedestrian bridge to the left of the property at the front that’s pretty, you can see the ventilated spire on the university from here too.
