Kelvingrove Museum

On Saturday we finally made our way over to Glasgow’s West end to visit the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery and have a look at the historic University of Glasgow campus. From where our flat is in Merchant city, we walked to the Buchanan st. subway station and headed a few stops West to the Kelvinhall stop. The Museum felt a lot like the ROM on the main level. There were natural specimens, local history displays, Ancient Egyptian artifacts, and educational programming zones. We saw some Charles Rennie Mackintosh furniture and designs which was exciting for me because I’ve been reading about him.

I enjoyed the upper level displays the most. This one on the Vikings was especially good and had these huge canvas backgrounds with landscapes printed on them and speakers embedded that gave a really great soundscape.

After the museum we headed to The 78 for a wholesome vegetarian lunch. We learned in The List that they had “possibly the best veggie burger in Glasgow,” and I must say, it was pretty darn good.
