Where can I find the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow?

Visitors can reach the Gallery of Modern art on foot,  by car, or by public transport. The gallery is only a short 3-minute walk from Glasgow City Centre but public transport from almost everywhere in Glasgow will take you to the centre of the City. For more information on public transport to the gallery, check out local bus provider services.

The Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow provides a deep thought-provoking experience that includes displays of both local and international artworks from the City’s collection as well as temporary displays and events with guest artists. There is a permanent display for visitors to enjoy that shows the history of the gallery’s building itself.

Outside of the gallery is the statue of the Duke of Wellington that is famously known for having a traffic cone sat on its head. Sometimes confused for being a piece of art displayed at the gallery, the cones are usually placed on the statue by passers-by late at night on their way back from a night out. This tradition of the traffic cone has been going on for almost 30 years now.
