Kelvingrove will be transformed this Christmas into a magical festive wonderland. Glasgow’s best loved museum will come to life through art projection, sound and lighting. It will be an interactive 90-minute journey that is powered by pure magic. After the tour, you can explore the warming winter market that will host gourmet street food and great bars. And if that isn’t enough Christmas spirit for you, there will be a Silent Snow Disco that takes place in a giant snow globe!
Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year at Kelvingrove this December.
Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, December 5 – January 5. Free – £18.50.
WORLD’S BIG SLEEP OUT
