We managed to get to Glasgow on the final day of the exhibition. Well worth the effort. The rest of the complex was also very good and well worth the visit.

A beautiful museum with a plethora of fascinating things to look at both natural history (clothing worn from the past) as well as sculptures and paintings. The architecture is beautiful as well. Worth a visit.
