A cloakroom is located on the lower ground floor entrance. Left luggage can be left in the cloakroom for a small charge - dependent on availability.
There are opportunities to touch or handle objects within the galleries – these will be clearly signed. The Discovery Centres will allow visitors to investigate and explore objects further, with more handling opportunities - you may be asked to wear gloves.
Object Identification Service
Kelvingrove offers the service to have an object or objects identified by a duty curator - Monday to Thursday between 10am and 4.30pm, Friday 11am to 4.30pm. Objects may be left at Kelvingrove or direct contact can be made with the relevant curator, who may be based at another of Glasgow Museums’ buildings. We cannot accept objects at weekends, and objects are left at the owner's risk. Please note that we are unable to give valuations.
