A Promise is A Promise - Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum ...Glasgow Scotland. MORE THAN WORTH IT !
This may be one of the shortest posts I have written. In two words ....JUST GO !!!
In Glasgow it is not only beautiful.....and amazingly interesting...it is FREE !!!! Just take the Underground or Tube to the Kelvinhall Station and with a short walk you are there. What I like most about this Gallery and Museum is the Eclectic collections...I felt as if I was in someone's home who had collected artifacts and art from around the world. It was MAGNIFICIENT !!!!! Even before entering it was particularly beautiful with lawn bowling greens at the corner of the building and people simply enjoying their day...under a beautiful Scottish sky.
Kelvingrove has over 20 Galleries and displays (according to the web) over 8,000 objects.
From Medieval Armor and Weapons to Salvador Dali's: Christ of Saint John on the Cross....
The galleries are breathtaking.........one had floating heads"
Another - a magnificent organ built in 1902 from world famous organs makers....it is played daily at 1:00 pm. Unfortunately I was there later in the day and didn't have the privilege of hearing it ....but oh my.....I did see it and it is beautiful:
I have been to so many museums and galleries this year......my first year of "Retirement Discovery" often they blend together. From Degas to Renoir to Dali to Picasso to Pissarro to O'Keefe to Magritte t0 ...whomever or whatever is next. I would come back here in a nano-second. I loved the mix of "collections". The creative skills of mankind and the infinite beauty of nature. Housed in a historic building - easily accessible by public transportation and free to all who want to meander the halls and expand their awareness of the world....AND if nothing else.....maybe take part in the game of lawn bowling.
