It was one of only two Scottish institutions to make it into the UK top ten museums in the 2015 Travellers’ Choice awards.

Kelvingrove Art Gallery (tenth in the list) was narrowly beaten from gaining the top position in Scotland by The National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, which came sixth.

The winner was London’s National Gallery, the British Museum came second, followed by the Victoria and Albert Museum in third place.

The results were based on the quantity and quality of reviews for museums over the past year.

New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art was ranked number one in the world, while the Musee d’Orsay in Paris came top in Europe.

London’s National Gallery also took fifth place in the continental ranking.
