We took our four grandchildren to Glasgow and the recommendations for Kelvingrove looked great so we went there on our first day. It exceeded expectations and the kids didn't want to leave when we needed to go meet our tour. It was wonderful and had a Spitfire like the one my husband's father blew when he was in the RAF--very special.

Top quality and slightly bonkers collection with many different themes, eras and disciplines mashed up together right next to each other. A must see in Glasgow, for me.

Really enjoyed the Kelvingrove. There is a good variety of different themes and displays.
The building itself is a pure delight both inside and outside.
We managed to catch an organ recital on the massive pipe organ. That was stirring stuff

There is something a bit magical about both the building itself and the exhibits inside. You could literally lose yourself for hours in the plethora of art, culture and exhibitions. There is such a wide variety of things to see that there really is something for everyone. My daughter and I spent a very happy few hours in here and there’s no way we came close to seeing it all.
Parking is plentiful and easy (pay and display)
The cafe serves really decent food and is reasonably priced. It’s staffed by an efficient and friendly team.
If you only visit one place on a visit to Glasgow then this really should be it!!

It is so “night at the museum” (movie) and it is free!
It is so worth a visit!

Negative: bad parking availability

Spent a couple of hours looking round here and had we not spent 2 hours on a walking tour, would have spent longer. Really great variety of art with good clear explanations. Very enjoyable and FREE!
