Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, an exuberant piece of Edwardian architecture, was built in 1901 to house both an art collection and Glasgow's old industrial museum, and its eclecticism is part of its appeal; few other museums can offer a stuffed elephant, a Spitfire and an outstanding collection of French Impressionists. Twenty-two collections and over 8000 artefacts, from natural history, armour and weaponry to art from many different eras and touring exhibitions, are all housed in a grand red sandstone building on the banks of the River Kelvin. There are interactive exhibits, talks, events and regular free recitals on the Kelvingrove organ. Kelvingrove also has a restaurant, a café and a gift shop.
