Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is located in the West End of the city, on the banks of the River Kelvin. It is situated near the main campus of the University of Glasgow.

The museum’s collections include:

  • Arms and armor
  • Natural history
  • European artworks
  • Old Masters
  • French Impressionists
  • Dutch Renaissance
  • Scottish and Glasgow Schools of Art
