What people are saying:

No matter where I go, as long as time permits, I will definitely visit the local museum. Because he allows you to understand the local customs and historical heritage most directly. The Kelvingrove Art Museum is located near the main building of the University of Glasgow. It is a Gothic building with a dazzling red brick wall. It's free to visit and there are plenty of parking spaces. The museum has a large area and a wide range of collections, ranging from animal fossils from ancient times to modern paintings and sculptures. It is a museum exhibiting multi-element art. Among them, Asian elements, Chinese antiques, world famous paintings and sculptures are all exhibited in kind. What impressed me more is the self-portrait of Van Gogh, the tortoiseshell fan fractured fan and embroidered pieces of the royal family of the Qing Dynasty in China, the ancient blue and white porcelain of China, the silverware left behind by the Vikings, the animal fossils of ancient times and the reflections of Glasgow's different periods Artifacts and so on.

    Great Scottish Museum

    Loved all of it, great Scottish display of weapons when I was there, and best part was that it was free. There was lots to see and the outside of the building is beautiful too.
