The photographs on Instagram are true to the magnificence of this institution. Beautiful artworks, from the conservative to the out-there. Beautiful building. Gorgeous indoors. Time very well spent, a must-do when in Glasgow.

Great gallery for all ages. Very impressive. The gallery like to receive gifts, but there are no required cost for entering. A lot of history over there!
