Enjoyable but not much to see in the actual museum, there was a guy playing the accordion was very delightful to listen to as he played well know theme songs!

The building itself is magnificent . Fantastic exhibition - The Glasgow Boys. The art and artefacts on display are keeping you entertained for hours. The building containes such a variety of exhibits like a real Spitfire aircraft, Paul Signac paintings, Dutch paintings, stuffed animals, armour, dinosaur skeletons, furniture and many more that it feels more like a curiosity cabinet than a museum or a gallery. And there is a funky lit in pink organ in the foyer where you can listen to a recital every day at 1. Highly recommended.

We called in here on our Ulsterbus tour for approx an hour and a half and is is to say the least OUTSTANDING!...
I personally could have spent far longer but it has whetted my appetite to go back some day... between the fabulous art,carvings,natural history,Egyptology,rainforests and the history of Glasgow to name but a few I guarantee a marvellous time.
I can definitely say we will be back.. really soon I hope

One of the best museums we've visited! Lots of great hands-on activities for little ones. Between the natural history and the more "traditional" art, there was plenty to do for everyone. And the building was stunning!

Loved this place. So much to see !! The Macintosh exhibition was on which was amazing, but the whole place is so worth a visit.
