  • Beautiful space and was lucky enough to arrive in time for a tour and an organ recital. Especially loved the floating heads installation.

  • The architecture is lovely and the galleries are well presented. The Kelvingrove Museum has a wonderful selection of Victorian Scottish painters — which is a must-see, along with the weaponry...

  • I was stunned. The museum is beautiful outside and inside. Great collections (with Dali's Christ on the Cross on display) and lots to see and experience. It's completely free, so make sure to go! On Sunday there is an organ recital around noon, which was also cool to see and hear.
  • Great selection of art, history and culture. Museum has free entry and is a great location to learn more about the city and the history. Good selection of exhibits. Would make a great day out for kids. Allow at least 2 hours for the visit. One of the best museums in Glasgow.
