Leading museum in revamped display

One of Scotland's leading museums, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glagsow, has unveiled a revamp of one of its key displays, the Glasgow Stories Gallery.

It shows the history of the city from the 12th century, through its industrial and trading golden age, to the current post-industrial city.

It also shows how Glasgow has become one of the leading cultural centres in the UK and Europe, known for its vibrant contemporary arts scene based around the Glasgow School of Art.

Objects on display include a ticket from the 1888 Glasgow International Exhibition held in Kelvingrove Park, the proceeds of which contributed to the building of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. These sit alongside other items such as Patrick Downie's watercolours of Victorian street scenes, fossil sponges and a section of Douglas Fir, an anorak from the Glasgow Garden Festival, and a jacket by textile designer Jilli Blackwood.
