Eight-thousand pieces of art are displayed across 22 galleries.
Kelvingrove re-opened in July 2006 after a massive three-year refurbishment. The museum had always been a real favorite (it's the most visited museum in the UK outside London), and its radical restructuring of the collections brought yet more plaudits, awards and visitors. Groups include Ancient Egypt, natural history, Scottish art and more. Objects are mixed together to tell a story rather than arranging them either chronologically or by artist. It makes for a fabulous visit! For a delightful extra, make sure you're there from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. when the glorious organ is played in the main hall.
