The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Glasgow Museum is a very important tourist attraction in Glasgow. Not only is the museum wonderful with great displays and a number of things to see but the building of the museum itself is absolutely stunning. Located on Argyle Street, this beautiful museum is an amazing place to visit.
The wonderful interiors and the gothic exteriors are sure to transport you back in time. The McLellan galleries form the most important aspect of all the objects on display. But there is a very impressive collection of ammunition from the history of Scotland. While there is a lot to see, the Piece de Resistance of the temple which is certainly not to be missed is the famour painting by the celebrated Salvador Dali. It is called Christ of Saint John of the cross and people come to see it from around the world. Art lovers and culture seekers should not miss this place.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery And Museum, Glasgow Reviews - Write a Review
Easy to get to as buses from Buchanan Street bus station stop outside. Enjoyed the organ recital at 1pm but it barely lasted 30 mins. Would have been nice to have another organist on an hour or so later. Interesting to see Glasgow photos of the past and how they lived when times were hard. Plenty of seating if the legs start complaining and as it's free entry a decent half day out.
Never given a museum such a low score. This is a pretty museum however who ever thought about how to layout the exhibitions and artworks failed on a big scale here. Having a painting from 1930s next to 2010 doesn’t make sense unless there is a reason for it. I was very disappointed . I guess it’s a cool museum for the kids because of the ‘ stuffed animals ‘. The museum is still under refurbishment.
One of the best museums I've ever been to, great varied exhibits (especially for children), the art is spectacular, and the decor is beautiful. To top it off there's free music and tours throughout the day. Be sure to check the opening times! It opens from 10am and free tours are at 11am, organ recital is at 1pm which is a good time to go to the cafe as it's a great view! (Not too hard to get a table on a weekday). The food is mostly packaged sandwiches and baked goods, but overall pretty good for a museum cafe and reasonably priced.
Great museum (free entrance) with a nice standard historic collection and several smaller exposition. A very nice building, mostly targeted to a younger audience but some times they also have something interesting for adults. One of the best museums in the city!
Some great art, I enjoyed it very much. I'd have liked to have been without kids for it, I'd probably have seen more, but they seemed to enjoy it. Natural history stuff was good too. It'd be easy to spend the whole day there I'd think. Half the toilets seemed to be out of order, no price board for cafe, beautiful building.
