18 September 2021 (Open for visits 10-5; Optional tours at 11 & 1) Glasgow
Doors Open Days Festival The Kelvin Hall is one of Glasgow's iconic buildings,
sitting in the heart of the city's West End on the banks of the River Kelvin.
Over the years the building has served the people of Glasgow in it's various
roles - from entertainment venue to sporting arena and even wartime factory.
Following an extensive refurbishment in 2016, the venue was once again
reimagined. Today is houses state-of-the art gym and sports facilities, as
well as cultural and research facilities for Glasgow Museums, the National
Library of Scotland and Glasgow University. Our building tours for Doors Open
Days will allow you to explore these facilities and learn more about the
building's story, past and present. The tour will include an opportunity to
meet staff from The Hunterian and visit their research facilities. Throughout
the day, the National Library of Scotland will also be showing 'Lost
Connections' in their cinema space. This 15 minute film is a poetic response
to the pandemic, exploring the themes of separation, loss and hope. Booking is
not essential to visit the site, but is required if you'd like to attend a
guided tour. Check back on this page on 1 September for the booking link.
