Stayed in Glasgow for 3.5 years, and never made it in until now. Fab place to visit on a rainy Sunday, lots to see, and cheap. Particularly loved the Egyptian exhibit!

Took the kids while on holiday from Canada and my mum and dad came to. Lots to see and it is all in a great setting in Kelvin Grove Park. Parking is only a £1 for 4 hours and entry to the museum is FREE....More

Generally I liked it but some points need some improvements. Like musicians should be play classic music... rock'n'roll does not feet to 17th century paintings... And it was extremely loud. Hard to enjoy the art when u cannot hear anything but sound of the thunder....More

A superb place. Do get there for the organ recital. The restaurant was welcoming. One day is too short a visit so plan to return as soon as possible!

Hi everyone =) I am planning a visit early April and wanted to see if anyone can give me even a rough guide as to how long could we spend in Kelvingrove? I want to plan ahead and was wondering if I could visit another place also or would this be an almost full day visit? Thank you!
