Why does Glasgow Museums have a Supporters Club?

The Supporters Club is a way for the many people who get so much out of Glasgow Museums to contribute to the museums’ future so more people can benefit. 

Why should I become a member?

Glasgow Museums are an immense source of pleasure and learning for millions of people in the city. As a charity, we rely on donations and support.  By joining Glasgow Museums Supporters Club you will help us continue to care for and display the collections. As a thank you, on joining, you will receive vouchers to enjoy the exhibitions at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museums as well as discounts in museums shops and café*. We will keep you up to date with all the activities that go on across the nine museums with regular e-newsletters. 

How many temporary exhibitions does Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum hold each year?
