Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
A spectacular late-Victorian heap of ornate red sandstone, the Kelvingrove (within a lovely park of the same name) is the signature gallery and museum of the city of Glasgow. It has a full house of historic exhibitions as well as a wide range of important Scottish art, such as colorist Samuel John Peploe's Roses, in addition to French and Dutch works and Salvador Dalí's iconic Christ of Saint John of the Cross. Entry is free.

Meet me at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum
When I wanna explore a vast oeuvre of art I head to this astounding historic gallery nicely tucked away by the banks of the River Kelvin to view one of the largest free civic art collections anywhere. Get your Dali, Renoir, Van Gogh, Rembrandt freak on and while you’re at it be enchanted by the stories behind the collections including the museum’s making. No wonder Glaswegians affectionately call this red sandstone building a jewel in the crown. The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, home to 8,000 pieces recently underwent a 30-million pound restoration adding high-tech interactive displays butted next to rare paintings by the world’s great masters.

One of the finest museums in the UK
Kelvingrove has to be on every Glasgow itinerary. A huge and fascinating gallery with a big range of exhibits and displays. Inside and out the building is hugely impressive and it is ideally located alongside Kelvingrove Park and the River Kelvin in Glasgow's West End. It's a great family activity and is free to enter.

Sir Roger, the elephant
We always have to visit Sir Roger, the elephant at the Kelvingrove. It's a fun museum with natural history and Dr. Who downstairs, and a decent selection of art upstairs. Good for kids. And it's free.
