Life Gallery Closure

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum’s popular Life Gallery is being redesigned to enable intriguing new specimens from the Natural History collections to be displayed.  The first phase has been well-received by visitors when it was unveiled in April 2016.  The final phase of this exciting development for one of Scotland’s most popular attractions will require the gallery to close to the public from 5pm on Sunday 9 October until late 2016.  No other galleries within Kelvingrove Museum will be closed.

New family-focused displays will allow visitors to journey through the story of flightless birds from Australasia; the incredible pilgrimage of leatherback turtles across the Pacific, the stunning scenery of the Arctic and how wildlife cleverly camouflages itself in that barren wilderness, together with exhibits on El Dorado, the Andes and the important issue of safeguarding our natural habitats to ensure all of this is protected for the future. ​
