The world class team behind GlasGLOW and itison is turning Kelvingrove into Elfingrove, with a spellbinding night time tour of Glasgow’s best-loved museum, where the magic of Christmas is brought to life.

The Experience

Walk through the doors of Elfingrove and into the Grand Hall to experience a Christmas like no other, where the museum and its inhabitants come to life and an ancient secret is finally revealed.

You’ll experience a 60-90 minute journey through the world of Elfingrove, culminating in a spectacular finale. When you step outside, your journey won't end; you'll emerge into a festive wonderland of gourmet street food and a bar with some incredible festive surprises, singing and dancing.

This Christmas, believe.

A night at the museum - the tour

When the last of the visitors leaves, and the guard locks up for the night… you’ll experience a world like no other as the museum comes to life. Animals prowl and roar, ancient warriors battle, The Glasgow Boys banter as paintings and statues take on a life of their own, and as for the Spitfire…

Discover one of Glasgow’s best loved buildings in a whole new light as you tour the museum, all brought to life with state-of-the-art projection, sound, lighting and a large dose of elf dust to create the most magical Christmas journey ever to be experienced.

Discover Santa’s best kept secret - the show
