About Kelvingrove Art Gallery And Museum

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Mu​seum is one of Scotland's most popular free attractions. It has 22 themed, state-of-the-art galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects. The collections are extensive, wide-ranging and internationally-significant. They include:

natural history
arms and armour
art from many art movements and periods of history, and
much more.
​We even have a real Spitfire!

Kelvingrove welcomes families with children, and its displays have been designed with children in mind. There are lots of interactives throughout the museum that will appeal to younger audiences.

The RBS Exhibition Gallery and the community exhibition space both have a running programme of temporary exhibitions and displays.

Please note that some temporary exhibitions are subject to an entry fee.

When visiting Kelvingrove you can enjoy its cafés and shops. You can also make use of its Study Centre and Library to find out more about Glasgow Museums’ collections and carry out research online.
