About Kelvin Hall
Kelvin Hall is currently being redeveloped and will reopen in Summer 2016. The Kelvin Hall stands on the bank of the River Kelvin opposite the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the West End of Glasgow.
This project is a unique partnership between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, the University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland which will transform this historic building into an exciting new centre of cultural excellence providing collections’ storage, teaching and research, alongside a state-of-the-art Glasgow Club health and fitness centre.
Safe, secure and publicly accessible museum storage will be created for the internationally-important Hunterian and Glasgow Museum’s collections. Around 1.5million objects, currently stored in various locations around the city, will be relocated to the new facility. This includes the only surviving complete suite of interiors by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Mrs Cranston’s Ingram Street tearooms which will undergo conservation works in public view. The National Library of Scotland’s Scottish Screen Archive will also be partners in the project which will provide a new home for the archive and improved access for the public to more than 100 years of Scottish history on film and video. A new digital portal for all three partners will bring the collections seamlessly together online.
