  • This really is a jewel not to be missed if visiting Glasgow. A rich variety of art work by Lavery etc... and of course the Dali. I could have gazed at the sculpture "Motherless" by Lawson for hours. S...  more »

  • Had a wonderful half day here at the Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum, really loved the experience. Its superbly laid out, with many little focussed galleries, telling the story of various artists throughout the ages. The museum section is also very interesting. They also have a wonderful pipe organ there, with performances from time to time, sounded wonderful. There are eateries too, where you can grab a bite to eat. Definitely worth a visit.
  • A must see during your visit to Glasgow. So much selection, you could spend the good part of an afternoon here easily. There is also a sitting area for you to take a break and have a coffee before you continue on the additional floors. Recommended.
  • This museum and gallery must have one of the largest variety to view, it's surroundings are wonderful. Restaurants and gift shops offer wonderful selections of gifts.
  • Happened to be there for one of the lunchtime organ recitals. Really quite spectacular. Free entry to the museum with lots of interesting things to see from history to art to more modern pieces.
  • A must see. Beautiful exhibits, extremely well done. Even if you're not a museum fan, give it a shot, entrance is free (they accept donations), so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
