Earlier this week, we were over in Glasgow for a family wedding, and of course couldn’t pass up the chance to stay a couple of days longer and visit one of our favourite museums. Since the Easter school holidays had already started in Glasgow, the Riverside Museum was a little overcrowded, but we still had a grand time. Here are a few iPhone impressions from our visit: #MuseumBaby is in to police cars big time, so he got very excited when he spotted this! Here’s […]

{Scotland} Day Trip to Glasgow

Last month I took a trip to Glasgow to visit Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery and the new Riverside Museum. I’d visited Kelvingrove before, and I’d had a sneak preview of the almost-but-not-quite-finished Riverside Museum, but this was my chance to see them again before leaving the country later this summer. Kelvingrove As I’ve admitted before, I’m not a huge art person and, given the choice, prefer museums with “stuff”, and on my past visits to Kelvingrove I’d mostly stuck to the “Museum” side of […]
