Only time for a short tour but impressed by both the building as the exhibition. Loved the Dutch art but also saw some kids art disguised as Art. Take a tour.

Couldn't get enough of the Dali painting and the history of Glasgow art. Great park and architecture all around

Good and interesting selection and something for everyone. Plenty of space to wander around and wheelchair accessible. I overheard some American visitors saying "imagine finding a place like this in Scotland" - it's quite jaw dropping as soon as you enter the central atrium.

Visited whilst on the city sightseeing bus. Great building to see and the museum itself was very interesting with art and a nice little animal collection for all ages to admire. Cafe and best of free! Donation is recommended at £5. Worth a visit!

What a place, everything from a full size elephant to a spitfire suspended from the ceiling. Don't forget to look up or you could miss excellent displays.

Took the wee man here for a second time in may and wasn't disappointed. He loved the stuffed animals and activities he could take part in. Rounded off with a trip to the cafe where we all had a nice feed.

It depends if you like to read all the info attached to the exhibits or just browse? You can definitely spend 1/2 day here, especially if you stop for a cup of tea in the cafe. It's set in beautiful grounds so combine with a... More
