Kelvingrove has a magnificent organ, which was built at the turn of the 19th century.
The organ was built by Lewis and Co, London, in 1901. It was initially housed in a temporary concert hall for the duration of the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition.
When the exhibition ended, it was bought by Glasgow Corporation (now Glasgow City Council). It was moved to its permanent home in the north end of the Centre Hall in 1902.
