Not many museums can get away with casually displaying a World War II aeroplane amidst stuffed animals and international masterpieces. But anything is possible at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, one of the most beautiful museums in the United Kingdom. In addition to its famous collection of paintings and impressive natural history department, the museum is filled with fun curiosities. And just who exactly is Sir Roger?
Since its inauguration in 1901, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has been the most visited museum in Scotland. Visitors are particularly drawn to the museum’s spectacular and diverse art collection, with more than 8,000 artefacts displayed in 22 rooms. But the 19th-century building, located in lovely Kelvingrove Park, is impressive in its own right. The red sandstone exterior is built in a distinctive Spanish-Baroque style with ornate towers on the roof.
