The Centre Hall

The impressive centre hall is constructed of blond sandstone from Giffnock. The ceiling is a cast concrete barrel vaulted type. There are twenty display galleries grouped around the centre hall and two side courts. On the ground floor are side-lit museum galleries, and on the first floor are top-lit picture galleries.

The Organ

The organ was originally situated in the temporary concert hall of the 1901 Glasgow International Exhibition in Kelvingrove Park. After the exhibition, it was brought to the Art Gallery and Museum in 1902. The walnut case front with decorative pipes was designed by John Simpson, one of the museum's joint architects. The organ was built by Lewis and Co of Brixton. It was restored in 1989, and there are frequent recitals.
