Recently visited Kelvingrove art gallery, a place I used to frequent during my youth. Good place to visit with the family, however I took my 3yr old along and found that he got quite bored quickly, not any fault of the establishment merely that he was a little young for the exhibits to hold his attention, that being said he...

This is the best Museum/Gallery I have ever visited. The organ recital was an unexpected delight. The exhibits go on and on and on - more surprises around every corner. There is so much to see, it could take a week. I will be returning soon, as I couldn't view enough in one afternoon.

The Salvador Dali is very moving and is beautifully hung with plenty of information available. There... More
