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

  • A great museum with a wide-ranging collection of different anthropological objects and works of art. There are also activities for children and families. The cafe is also superb and has a nice view. I will definitely return when I am next in Glasgow. I particularly enjoyed the Glasgow Boys’ paintings but the historical exhibits were also well-presented. Accessible and clear captions accompany all exhibits.

  • Free Gallery, no tickets. It has two sections, one houses art collections from different regions and paintings. Second section houses natural history specimens and collection. In between the two sections is a hall, which houses an Organ. Every sunday at 3pm, Organ is used for melodies, we happened to be at perfect time, listened to it. A lovely experience. Gift shop is amazing with variety of souvenirs. The most amazing thing to see in Kelvingrove is the Floating Heads sculpture, that is hung through sealing, a multitude of white heads with variety of expressions.

  • I explored this museum with a friend on my first day in Glasgow. It's about a 35 min walk from the city centre. There is also a subway stop about 10 min walk away. Admission is free. There are exhibits on many different subjects with lots of great artwork. The gallery has made great efforts to be interactive and fun for kids. The park is nice too.

  • What's not to love? Upside: Great selection of art and collectibles some that are unique and may favourite is the Van Gough Paintings. Cafeteria has a great selection of vegetarian options. Stores are reasonably price. 1pm Live Organ show was superb surprise and great amazing experience. Downside: washrooms are in the basement, queue line ups are long.

  • Another one of Glasgow's amazing free museums. I have tons of great memories here, there's so much to see if you've never been before, end even if you have, it's such a nice building and setting that it's worth more visits. From the big organ in the main hall to the Spitfire and elephant and so much more, it's definitely a brilliant place to visit.
