Visit the world’s largest permanent display about Mackintosh and the Glasgow style, amongst 22 themed galleries within Glasgow’s favourite building.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has been a favourite with Glasgow residents since it opened in 1901, as part of the Glasgow International Exhibition. The museum displays 8,000 objects in 22 themed galleries. There are works by Salvador Dali, Dutch Old Masters, French Impressionists and well-known Scottish artists, as well as natural history, ancient Egyptian artefacts, dinosaurs, Sir Roger the Elephant and even a Spitfire!
The museum is also home to the Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style Gallery, the largest permanent display of work in the world by the key names in the Glasgow Style movement. The City owns an incredible collection of objects from this internationally important period of design and the decorative arts, and the gallery showcases the techniques used – from exquisite stained glass, enamels and metalwork to ceramics, gesso, furniture and tearoom interiors.
