Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA)

Royal Exchange Square Glasgow G1 3AH

This strikingly avant-garde collection is housed in a grand neoclassical building complete with vaulting and Corinthian columns – a very Glasgow juxtaposition if ever there was one. The central ground floor space has huge windows that bring the best out of the ever-changing collection, and the whole gallery is an enjoyable, user-friendly space much beloved of city-dwellers. To be honest, much of the collection is of dubious artistic merit, but there is plenty of hands-on action in the childrens’ section, and the shop is a handy place to pick up some striking postcards and stylish souvenirs.

Works to look for include those by David Hockney, Sebastiao Salgado and Andy Warhol, as well as more domestic Scottish talents such as John Bellany and Ken Currie. Temporary exhibits are a crucial part of the gallery’s work and there are usually at least a couple of temporary exhibitions on at any given time.
