Glasgow Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

Glasgow Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery is one of Glasgow’s proudest possessions. This amazing building is set within the beautiful surroundings of Kelvingrove Park including Glasgow University, the Glasgow Museum of Transport and Park Grove and Trinity College Towers / Rocheads Park Church Tower as well as Byres Road. The Kelvingrove Museum houses everything from fine and decorative arts to archaeology and the natural world. The number of individual items in the natural history department alone is vast. You can admire Sir Roger the Elephant or wonder at 300-million-year-old fossils of marine life from the Glasgow area.

The Glasgow Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery has been shut for major refurbishment and renovation since July 2003 and the work is expected to be finished with a official opening date on the 11th of July and the Official opening ceremony in September. With the Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery closure most of the museum items and artefacts were moved to other museums within Glasgow city, the biggest collection being moved to the McClellan Galleries on Sauchiehall Street. This project is being funded by Glasgow City Council, the European Union, Historic Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund Scotland and other small charities events from the general public.
