Overview

As a city centre gallery I wasn't sure what to expect. It was great to find an accessible gallery along with a shop, library and cafe.

Transport & Parking

4

Being in the centre of Glasgow there were plenty of buses to choose from. Taxis were in abundance and it was a short walk to both Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central railway stations.

Access

4

Facing the building you see several steps to get in. Exploring closer I found a ramp on either side of the door. Going in through the automatic door staff welcomed us and gave us a map. An accessible lift, large enough for two wheelchairs, took us to the various levels. Once inside the gallery exhibits were clearly signed and it was good to see large print description books available. There were also several touch screens giving information.

Toilets

3.5

An accessible toilet was adjacent to the standard toilets in the lower level. Access to this was on request as it was kept locked. It was spacious, had grab rails and was clean and tidy.

Staff

5

All the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

At the lower level there was a cafe which was easy to wheel around and had moveable furniture which allowed for easy wheelchair access. It was good to find that it was easy to wheel around the shop without having to worry about hitting displays. All in all a great place to visit where our group, including two wheelchair users, were made to feel welcome.
