Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

[Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum]

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is one of Glasgow's, and Scotland's, most popular tourist attractions. Housed in a towering red sandstone building on the west side of Kelvingrove Park, the interior underwent a massive restoration between 2003 and 2006 following its 100th anniversary. It now claims to have 22 separate galleries, including excellent natural history, armour and continental art collections. A unique feature is the daily lunchtime organ recital in the Main Hall, on an instrument as old as the building itself. Like the museum, it's free to attend.
