NileGuide Expert Says:
One of the UK's most visited galleries and museums, and its FREE!
This is one of Scotland's most visited attractions, and the most visited gallery/museum in the UK outside of London. The gallery and museum are set in a fantastic building, boasting 22 themed, state-of the art galleries displaying an incredible 8000 objects. The truly eclectic collections are extensive and wide-ranging, covering natural history, arms and armour, art from many art movements and periods of history. The art ranges from French Impressionists to Spanish surrealists.There are also areas dedicated to Scottish artists, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Glasgow style, which gives the place a real local feel.
The gallery is divided between Expression on the east side and Life on the west. It has also been designed with children in mind and there are lots of interactive displays throughout which will delight your kids.
Be sure to stop off in the cafés and shops, or use the Study Centre and Library to find out more about the museums in Glasgow, collections, or do some research on-line. For a laugh, be on the look out the furry haggis animal!
