The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) awarded Kelvingrove its first and largest grant.
It awarded £12.7 million, nearly 50% of the core project, and the biggest ever grant by the Fund to a Scottish project.
This indicated the Fund's confidence in Glasgow City Council's ability to deliver the project. It also set the project up financially and inspired many other potential funders.
