Dinosaur Facelift

Some of the 200,000 exhibits moved from Kelvingrove to allow modernisation of Glasgow's premier art gallery and museum went on transatlantic travels that took in Kentucky and Kalamazoo in the United States, and Quebec in Canada. Most, however, including the fibre glass shark, the totem pole and the 14-foot tall Tyrannosaurus rex were carefully placed in storage during the three-year, pound;27.9 million refurbishment that ends this summer when Kelvingrove's doors re-open. Major new features will include a study centre, a multimedia object cinema, an education suite for schools, and three interactive discovery centres dedicated to hands-on learning in art, history and the environment.www.glasgowmuseums.com
