Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Yesterday I went on a quick look around the newly re-opened Kelvingrove. (Pictured here: some unidentified busts, the obigatory heads photo, and the organ)

A lot of it seems much like 'museum-lite' the labels are all written in very simple language, and it seems very dumbed down. Reading their explanation of it puts it into a bit more context, though. As someone who doesn't know a lot about art, though, it's good to have interpretations for just about everything on display; it just seemed like the museum bits were stating the obvious a little.

But as with any Victorian public building, it's lovely just wandering around and enjoying the building itself - all big and airy and sandstoney.

Those floating heads remind me of the BBC freeview ad that got all them complaits. Think they'll have to take them down soon for the same reason?
