The chance to browse through Europe’s largest collection of civic art, all under one lavishly vaulted roof, for free? Little wonder that the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of the most-visited tourist attractions in Scotland. The permanent collection here includes myriad works by French Impressionists (including Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, and Van Gogh), as well as major pieces by Rembrandt van Rijn and Salvador Dalí. For medieval-history buffs (and Game of Thrones fans), there’s an one of the finest collections of European arms and armor in the world; and hometown art heroes are celebrated in galleries devoted to Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the late-19th-century painters’ collective known as The Glasgow Boys.
