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.

Out and about in Glasgow

Cruise visitors calling on Greenock, Scotland with enough time in port can head to the local train station for a quick ride to Glasgow. Once in Glasgow, visit the museum and other cultural attractions. The museum boasts some of the best architecture in the city, and inside make sure to explore the art and natural history exhibits.

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.
