Exploring the redeveloped Kelvin Hall

Last week, I joined other local councillors for a tour of the first phase of the redevelopment of Kelvin Hall. This project has involved a partnership between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, the University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland.

As part of the tour, I was able to find out about the various services provided from this redeveloped building and explore the impressive facilities that are available. 

There is high quality storage for objects from the University's Hunterian Museum and Council's collections, with a Hunterian Study Centre and lecture/seminar space for teaching/research. The National Library of Scotland's Moving Image Archive is also based here. Glasgow Club Gym offers a range of exercise and leisure activities including access to a gymnastics/martial arts hall, sports hall, large gym, and group fitness studios. It opens to the public in August 2016.
