Kelvingrove Art Gallery And Museum - Review

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.

Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 5 days.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery And Museum, Glasgow Reviews

  • Museum is excellent. Has a lot of science exhibits and art galleries also. Could spend up to a half a day here if you take your time. Recommend between 2/3 hours. Like how the content is targeted around Glasgow themes such as the origins of Scottish people. Didn’t have enough time to see the park but might come back and do that.

  • Fabulous range of interesting displays which are really well set out. Great gift shop and café downstairs. The staff were amazing when I left my wallet there arranging to send it to me in London at no cost. It’s rare to get such generous service nowadays. Can’t thank them enough for their kindness and generosity.

  • Free to enter. This museum and gallery is fantastic. It's a great place to visit and see some great art and also learn about some of the nature that you can see in Scotland. It has pieces on display from the Glasgow Boys. If you time it right you may also get to see and hear the great organ being played in an impromptu concert. It's also great to walk through and around the Kelvingrove Park.

  • One of the nicest things is the free admission. Great place for a day out with kids or alone. Has a little bistro if one needed a bite or coffee. Such impressive collection that one day is not enough to see them all. It's always buzzing with people - groups of tourists, families with kids, elderly. Everybody can find something interesting here. One of the absolute must-see places in Glasgow. Offers organ recitals everyday at 1 pm too. And if one gets tired walking, the Kelvingrove Park outside offers a beautiful surrounding to chill out.

  • This art gallery is in a beautiful location with a variety of interesting exhibits. I think anyone can find something here that appeals to them. There are also a couple of cafes inside in case you want a little something to eat or drink. Free admission to the gallery is just an added bonus. Highly recommend for all tourists and even locals as fun outing.
