For many people in Glasgow, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is like an old friend. It has many familiar exhibits and everyone has their own favourite items that they like to visit.

Our walking group visit there last week was to see a newly opened room - Life in the Rainforest - where some of the sights and sounds from the South American jungles can be experienced.

As the weather outside was pleasant, the group then took a walk through Kelvingrove Park and up to Park Circus to visit another gallery, The Common Guild, to see the Sharon Hayes exhibition 'In My Little Corner of the World Anyone Would Love You'.

Following this, another walk back through the park took the group to the newly refurbished Kelvinhall, which now holds and displays some of the collections from Glasgow Museums, The University of Glasgow and National Library of Scotland.
