After the wonders of the Kelvingrove we found this a little disappointing. I thought the subject to Dr William Hunter was just to esoteric. I am sure he made a major contribution to medicine but but the subject was just to specialist for me.

I was astonished by the quality of the art in this gallery, exhibiting local artists and internationally famous ones as well.

Had a good look around the museum. It is a bit hidden within Glasgow College grounds and up a hill but worth it for a look at the exhibits. We combined a visit here with the Kelvingrove museum. It is located in an old building...More

Enjoyed visit but nothing else to see as not open at this time also no photos allowed so think £6 admission is a bit steep.

Initially it was difficult to find but it was good once I had arrived. Unfortunately I was unable to visit Mackintosh House due to it closing, and I was not informed of this when I arrived at the gallery. Overall good experience though.

Sorry I don't know the answer. I was only in Glasgow 2 days last month on a short break. I do not live there and so do not keep up to date on what's on.

Not sure since we didn't actually go to the show but it should be worth it as Scottish comics are great eg the Beano and the Dandy,
