Fun In Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
by Christina Ronning
I am from Norway, and was a student in Glasgow about 20 years ago. Now married with 2 daughters, I brought them over to Glasgow in the summer.
I wanted to see my old best places, and to let them see what a great city Glasgow is.
Of course, I took them into the free museums and galleries. We had a wonderful holiday.
I did not know that Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum had been restored quite recently. It seemed to glow from the inside. I asked about the stonework, and was told that it had been stone-cleaned both inside and out, bringing it back to its original glowing best.
The kids LOVED the museum! There are so many hands-on things for them to do. I was also happy that enough of my English is there, for me to translate the useful information for them.
I miss Glasgow, and my re-visit was perfect. The highlight was probably our day in Kelvingrove Museum.
Best wishes to all in Glasgow
