Main entrance to Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery
Main entrance to Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery
The "main" entrance to the Art Gallery is actually at the rear of the building, as viewed from the main road. There is a rumour that goes around Glasgow that the architect jumped from the roof of the building after discovering it had been accidentally built back to front - this is untrue, as the real architect - Sir John William Simpson - lived for another 32 years after the Gallery opened. The gallery appears to be built back to front as it was opened to coincide with the 1901 International Exhibition in Kelvingrove Park, and faces in to the site of the Exhibition.
