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.

A wonderful place to while away a few hours. So much to see and explore. Wonderful art and exhibits from natural history on display. There is a daily organ recital in the main hall at lunchtime also. A coffee shop upstairs and a fully stocked cafe downstairs along with several gift shops. Free to visit but donations are always welcome. Just make sure you have enough change for the parking (£5.20 for 3 hours).
Great place to visit for entire family. Everyone may find something interesting. Have plenty of time cause there's a lot to see. Car park could be a bit bigger and cheaper but fortunately it's quite easy (and cheap) to find spaces in adjacent streets - at least I never have problems. Go there once and surely will you return many times.
Large art museum west of downtown Glasgow in fabulous historic turn-of-the-century building. Very nice collection of nineteenth-century art as well as Arts-and-Crafts movement, particularly in Scotland ca. 1900, including pieces and interiors of C.R. Mackintosh (located close to the main entrance, no less). Set at edge of beautiful larger park, accessible to major public transit. Highly recommended for museum-goers.
Best museum in Scotland. The wealth and array of items on display here are worthy of any museum in the world. Worth visiting for the Spitfire and ‘floating heads’ alone, not to mention Dali’s ‘Christ of Saint John of the Cross’ which can be seen along with works from other old masters and a variety of local artists.
Fabulous museum and art gallery with lunchtime organ recitals. Something for everyone here. I particularly enjoyed the Viking and early people's exhibits and the paintings. There is somewhere to get lunch or a coffee and the number 100 bus outside the front entrance will take you back into the centre of Glasgow. Delightful.
