Continue past the shop entrance and take the turning left. Locate the south entrance to the Shop on your left and turn right here to locate the Lower East Stairs. Go up two flights of stairs to Ground Floor level then turn left, continue into the East Court. Take the turning left into Looking at Art, turn right and continue into the Centre.
Continue, to the wall then move to your right, past the entrance to the Restaurant and locate the East Lift to your left. At First Floor level, turn left (180 degrees) and continue into the East Court. Take the turning left into Looking at Art, then turn right and continue into the Centre.
Enter the Main Hall, pass the seating outside Coffee at Kelvingrove, to your right, then turn right and continue into the East Court. Take the turning left into Looking at Art, then turn right and continue into the Centre.
The Centre occupies the northeast corner of the building and, like other corners, juts outwards (north) from the main wall so that the north side curves round to become the east. Although you enter into the southwest corner from Looking at Art, you make your way around a complex display to your left, which leads back towards the near (west) wall of the room.
