Why Visit the Kelvingrove Museum?

The Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery in Glasgow, Scotland, has one of the largest collections of objects and art in Scotland. Here you will find 20 themed galleries that display everything from medieval armor to a spitfire plane to impressionist paintings. It is one of the largest and best free museums in Scotland and is one of the most visited attractions in Glasgow. It’s easy to spend three or more hours here exploring the many galleries.


If you only have time to visit one museum in the city, this is a top recommendation. It’s a general museum that can contain a wide variety of exhibits that appeal to all travelers. The museum can get a bit crowded so it does help to go closer to opening time so you can have a more pleasant visit. The main collection to the museum is free but there are admission fees charged for any special exhibitions. You will also find a gift shop and café on the site.
