Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is Scotland's most visited free attraction. With 22 themed, state-of-the-art galleries displaying an astonishing 8000 objects, the collections are extensive, wide-ranging and internationally-significant.
Great way to spend an afternoon.
Went primarily for two things.
1. Charles Rennie Mackintosh exhibition, this was very good.
2. Crucifixion of Christ. This was on lone. Disappointing :-(
Nice café with great table service.
Good fun free day out. The CRM exhibition was £7 entry but that is a small price to pay for a great museum/gallery that is all free.

Glasgow Tigers Speedway is Glasgow's only true motorsport venue. Glasgow Tigers compete in the Championship League of UK speedway and race every Friday at 19:30 from March to October. There are also occasional midweek races. Speedway is a fast and exhilarating sport and involves motorbikes, with no brakes, whizzing around an oval circuit at speeds of up to 70 mph. Speedway is also a family sport where kids can get involved with the 'Growlers' Club' and get to meet Roary, our Tiger Mascot. Glasgow Tigers' facility is one of the best in UK speedway and has fantastic catering facilities, a bar and some great viewing areas. The stadium is also fully wheelchair accessible.
Great food every time, new chef is very helpful and always ensuring food is of good taste. Cafe is open everyday and food is great value. All the girls who work there are very helpful and nothing is a hassle. Definitely one of possils hidden good good places!

Take a fascinating tour of the University of Glasgow campus, and explore the University's stunning architecture (with over 100 listed buildings) and discover incredible stories from its 550 years of history. Guided campus tours are led by trained student guides and last for approximately one hour - you can find out more by visiting: boxoffice.src.gla.ac.uk/product/university-glasgow-tours. Other must-see attractions to visit on campus include: • The Hunterian Museum • The Hunterian Art Gallery (including The Charles Rennie Mackintosh House) • The Visitor Centre Shop for University merchandise and Scottish gifts (10% off with your tour ticket) • A selection of cafés and restaurants for coffee or a bite to eat
Disappointed with this tour, 95% is outdoors which is dreech when wet and very cold, as the main focus is walking around the outside of the building which you can do yourself without the cost. No mention of the CR MacIntosh room across the road which I would have thought would have been part of tour, no mention of where café is and left outside when finished. Mention was made of Huntarian museum and this is free and many times more interesting than being frozen and soaked. Save your £10 for 50 minute tour.

Really enjoyed the tour. Interesting tour of the brewery. Tour guide was very good. You get a pint and other samples at the end so it is a good value for money too. Recommend it for both Glasgow locals and visitors.Hello there We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the brewery tour experience. Aye, the drinks at the end always go down well! Cheers! TVC

Over 360 acres of green, this lovely park is best known for its well-kept scenic running and walking trails.
Set in a spacious park in the center of 19th Century Suburban Glasgow, is a country home now museum that is worthy of a visit when in Glasgow. Pollok House is grand and architecturally significant, with several lovely interior spaces that "wow", filled with an historic collection of paintings from Spain and Italy filling it's gallery of rooms: step out to the parterre Gardens (they were in bloom in the temperate winter), and, make time for a soup and Sandwich in the former kitchen lit from a glass lantern - turned into a cafe...and, Scottish gifts available in an ample gift shop. (food, wool products and other gift items).

Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1901 and built in the attractive setting of Bellahouston Park in the 1990s, House for an Art Lover allows the visitor an insight into Mackintosh's renowned talent not just as an architect, but as a an artist, designer and pioneer of the Modern Movement. The venue runs regular arts themed events and is home to the popular Art Lover's Cafe.
Wow! Great updated construction of Charles & Margaret Mackintosh’s designs! Amazing to see this building, hats off to Graham Roxburgh having the dream ! It is such an interesting building. It is however a working building not just a museum! This would suit people who love and appreciate Scottish architecture and the history of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret McDonald Mackintosh. The cafe is excellent for afternoon tea!

2013 Winner of the European Museum of the Year. Highlights include steam trains, Glasgow trams and trolley buses, vintage cars, motorbikes and cycles including possibly the worlds oldest bicycle. There is also a Glasgow street with shops, subway station and pub. Guided tours available.
This was much better than we expected and we spent more than a couple of hours here. The cafe was good too. This was so interesting.
