Phase 1 of Kelvin Hall project to complete this summer
The £40m redevelopment of one of Glasgow’s most famous landmarks is on target for completion this summer.
Kelvin Hall will sit alongside Kelvingrove Museum and the Riverside Museum, creating a new cultural and heritage district in Glasgow.
The former sports arena is being transformed into one of the UK’s biggest museum and academic research centres, and will also house a public sporting and museums facility, as well as becoming home to the National Library of Scotland’s Scottish Screen Archive.
The development brings the University of Glasgow; The Hunterian Museum; Glasgow Life (Museums and Sport); and the National Library of Scotland under one roof.
The Hunterian Museum will house its new collection study and research facilities, with space for more than 1.5 million items, many of which have never been on public display and are currently stored in nine separate storage facilities around the city.
Glasgow Museums, with 400,000 objects, and Glasgow Sports will provide open public access to its collections and sporting facilities, and the National Library of Scotland will move the Scottish Screen Archive, with its entire television and film collection, to the new site.
“Kelvin Hall, when it is completed, will be the best museum district outside of London,” says Professor Anton Muscatelli, principal of the University of Glasgow.
Phase 2 of Kelvin Hall project will transform the 16,000sq m hall, which once housed the former Transport Museum, into the new Hunterian together with developments from other civic and national partners. Completion is scheduled for 2020.
Funding for the Kelvin Hall development has been sourced from a range of supporters including the University of Glasgow, The Hunterian, Glasgow Life Museums and Sport, National Library Scotland, Scottish Government, Heritage Lottery Fund, Historic Scotland and Glasgow City Council.
