The science museum inside is informative (and dedicated to Lord Kelvin, very interesting stuff) and the grounds are beautiful - definitely worth a visit!

The Kelvingrove has been a regular haunt of myself and my family for years. Although not to be missed when visiting Glasgow I still prefer the Gallery as it was before renovation.

The location of the University in green ambience by the Kelvin River makes the visit worthwhile as it seems in perfect harmony with nature. An evening stroll in the University zone is a great way to relax in nature and admire the architecture of the university buildings.
