"Impressive Art Museum"

In 1901, the splendid Kelvingrove Gallery was built to house the International Exhibition. In 2007 a major remodel was completed, making Kelvingrove even more of a must-see Glasgow attraction than it was before. This red sandstone building on Glasgow's Argyle Street immediately captures attention, as do the 22 themed galleries and remarkably curated 8000-odd objects inside it. According to a local legend, the gallery was built back to front by mistake, but this is just a myth - it was intended to face the river rather than the road. The collection within ranges from local historical art to Rodin sculptures, natural history specimens of varying interest, and a Stormtrooper costume from the original Star Wars films. There is also an emphasis on the King of Surrealism, Salvador Dali's 'Christ of St John of the Cross'. Exciting exhibitions, a special emphasis on involving youngsters and a timeless devotion to art deems the Kelvingrove Gallery one of the most noteworthy artistic repositories in Scotland.
