Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum Reviews
I've been to Kelvingrove many times and it's definitely my favourite museum in Glasgow. I love that it has a mix of art, history, nature and its also free to visit! more »
I stumbled upon the museum. I headed to Glasgow for a tour of Celtic Park but had some time to kill so I walked from the center of the city towards west since I heard there was some cool stuff out... more »
One of my favourite museums in the world, I visit every time I find myself in Glasgow! If you are lucky, you might stumble upon a recital on their massive pipe organ - it was an excellent experience when I did, a lovely surprise. Also a must see is the gorgeous painting "Christ of Saint John of the Cross", by Salvador Dali. Unfortunately it was away on a loan the last time I visited - hopefully I'll see it on my next trip there!
This is a fantastic museum! Lots to see and child friendly. Could spend the whole day here quite happily. Beautiful, grand building and free entry! Happy to leave a donation. Well worth a visit.
