What a fantastic building! I arrived on a city tour open top bus which has stops at the front and the back of the building, adjacent to the beautiful gardens. It looked especially lovely in the blazing 31 degree heat, with visitors lounging around on the grass outside. Inside, there's lots of different exhibits, art works and curios. Personally, I found it a bit busy and would rather focus in more detail on less themes. However, it's great for families and children with short attention spans. At 1pm there was a wonderful organ recital - perfect with a cuppa from the cafe!

Burrell Collection is Glasgow's premier art stop Go there first. However, the combination of art museum and natural history museum makes for an interesting combination.

Took my friend here as part of her birthday as she had never visited before. It was still as magical as ever and we both had a fabulous day. Cannot wait to return.

The pictures advertising this place seem to suggest it's more of a museum that also has art. When we went it seemed a lot more arty than I was expecting. The place was a labyrinth and finding the toilets (including differing directions from two staff members) was very difficult. We didn't stay long.

Love the Kelvingrove, been going for more than 40 years so the Mackintosh exhibition was another excuse.
Great exhibition in the downstairs space, well laid out & informative. Plenty of staff on hand to answer questions & glad to see lots of tourists enjoying it as well as locals.
Also glad to see Dali’s Christ on the Cross back in its rightful place.
As usual too much to see on one visit so won’t be long til we return
