Entering the reconstructed Mackintosh family home transports one back to the brilliance of the Arts and Crafts aesthetic:House for an Art Lover is a definite must for anyone interested in architecture,interior design and/or the Arts and Crafts movement.

There’s nothing wrong with this site, but it is NOT an art gallery-merely a continuation of the museum across the street. Both are, to get right down to it, simply a high quality Victorian Cabinet of Curiosities. The Art Gallery area at least has more...More

After the wonders of the Kelvingrove we found this a little disappointing. I thought the subject to Dr William Hunter was just to esoteric. I am sure he made a major contribution to medicine but but the subject was just to specialist for me.

I was astonished by the quality of the art in this gallery, exhibiting local artists and internationally famous ones as well.

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.

Not sure since we didn't actually go to the show but it should be worth it as Scottish comics are great eg the Beano and the Dandy,
