It is such a great place to take your visiting family and friends to learn about Glasgow’s artistic side and interact with great exhibits. I would recommend for anybody to impress someone on the first date or just spend a rainy afternoon amongst amazing art!

We sadly could not spare as much time as we would have liked but will definitely return. Where else could you find Elvis next to a dinosaur and 'shoes through the ages' an amazing lunchtime organ recital, a truly wonderful art gallery and all free!

Really fascinating place! So much to see and learn about. Loved the section where some of the art was explained and found it really educational. Could while away an afternoon here no problem and it's free!! Worth a visit :)
