I visited this building as I was passing by. The building is beautiful but the contents did not interest me. That's fine because it was free.

There is nothing we can add to the title. I'm just glad it was free. We waited for the gallery to open as it was our last day in Glasgow and wanted somewhere to visit close to our hotel. There were so many other places...More

Took small children, who don’t let you read many plaques, but they had fun and I had fun. Kids extremely enjoyed the creative space as well as the duke of Wellington statue with the traffic cone on his head!

Visited the Gallery of Modern Art for the first time despite being a Glaswegian having walked past it for so many years. First off, the building is grand building. The building is a fine example of neo-classical architecture and the side facing Queen street is...More

They say you should always look up and "The GOMA" is no exception. Whether it's admiring the Duke of Wellingtons latest head gear or the glass ceiling inside. Exhibitions range from weird to wacky and somewhere in between. Always sure to leave smiling.More

Thanks for your review though I'm not sure that the statue of the Duke of Wellington and his horse Copenhagen qualifies as modern art - it was erected in 1844! However, I'm glad that you enjoyed seeing the be-coned Duke outside GoMA. Like all museums...More

Art is supposed to be daring and provocative...this has nothing to do with the individual political ideologies of the staff.

I didn't realize it had a Political Theme, but I also am not into Modern Art So didn't pay much attention.
