  • This has a great collection and is well worth a visit but is sadly let down a little by poor lighting.

  • A must-see in Glasgow which caters for all interests. Great exhibitions with interesting information provides. Highlights for me were the Ancient Egypt exhibition, Christ of Saint John on the Cross...

  • What a great place. Amazing building. Full of treasures, brilliant selection of art work, historical treasures and natural history sections. All displayed clearly with easy to understand information. Best selection we’d seen in one place for a long time. Thoroughly enjoyed our day here. Good cafe too. Highly recommended
  • Fantastic Museum. Perfect for an afternoon in Glasgow. Free of charge. You get the best bits of Egypt, Natural History, Natural history of Scotland, History of Glasgow and a pretty neat collection of paintings. I was delighted as it was neither heaving packed or boring. Could take my time and everyone respected each other Thank you!
