Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum



Here is a continuation of my trip to Scotland last month … after a delicious lunch at the Corinthian, we headed through Glasgow to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.  I’ll post some pictures of driving through Glasgow and then also photos from Kelvingrove.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum first opened in 1901 when it was a large part of the Glasgow International Exhibition.  It has free admission and 22 themed galleries displaying 8000 objects.  The galleries include natural history, arms and armour and art from many art movements and periods of history.

Unfortunately, we only had time for a whirlwind visit as we started our tour at lunch and still had a few other stops before retiring for the evening.  However, it was enough to make me want to go back again and spend the day there.  It’s  full of wonderful sights and there is lots to learn and enjoy there.  I would highly recommend a visit to the Art Gallery and Museum.

  1. It’s a great place, isn’t it? And getting in for free is a big bonus. You’d think they might make up for that with hefty parking charges, but no; i seem to remember it only cost £1 to park there for several hours. I was very pleasantly surprised. Good tearoom, too.

    1. That is great news about the parking, Lorna! I didn’t pay much attention as we were on a coach and we just got off and I didn’t think about how much it cost. Good news about the tearoom too. I’ll have to have check it out next time I go to the Museum.

Looking forward to hearing from you
