The 'AC/DC: Scotland's Family Jewels' exhibition is currently on show at the Kelvingrove Museum (its only European stop before moving on to the United States as part of its world tour). It closes on Sunday 12th February, so for those that haven't seen it yet, now's the time to arrange a visit.


The exhibition is the only one fully approved by AC/DC themselves, and celebrates the 39 year history of the band, with many items being on public display for the first time, including stage costumes, handwritten lyrics, letters written to their families and friends whilst on tour, a Cannon stage prop and even one of Angus Young's very own custom-made guitars.

Add to this a selection of live footage and promotional videos from throughout the bands career displayed on giant screens throughout the exhibition, as well as giving visitors the chance to play the ultimate guitar riff on an interactive display, its a must for AC/DC fans and more casual rock music fans alike.


The reason the exhibition is in Glasgow, of course, is because both Malcolm and Angus Young were born in the city before moving to Australia in 1963 (when they were aged 10 and 8 respectively) and don't forget too, that Bon Scott (singer of the band from 1974 until his untimely death in 1980) was born in Kirriemuir, just outside Dundee before he and his family moved to Australia in 1952.
