Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Glasgow's favourite building

Glasgow's favourite building and much-loved museum reopened in July 2006 following a huge restoration project. An astonishing 8000 objects are on display.

Kelvingrove’s internationally significant collections are displayed in 22 state-of-the-art galleries. They include superb paintings and sculptures, silver and ceramics, European armour, weapons and firearms, clothing and furniture. The natural history of Scotland is treated in depth and there are displays of relics from Scotland’s history and prehistory.

The museum is a great day out for families, with lots of interactive displays aimed at engaging young minds. Kelvingrove regularly hosts temporary exhibitions, and events and activities for all ages to enjoy.

When visiting Kelvingrove you can enjoy its cafés and shops. You can also make use of its Study Centre and Library to find out more about Glasgow Museums’ collections and carry out research online.

Admission free.
