The Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow has welcomed its millionth visitor, just two months after it reopened.
David Ross said he wanted to show his children the Kelvingrove
The figure matches the annual tally from before its £28m revamp.
Welcoming David Ross and his family, Lord Provost Liz Cameron said the landmark showed how central the museum and art gallery was to Glasgow life.
It comes as paintings, including work by Billy Connolly and Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos, went under the hammer at a charity event.
Ms Cameron said: "These fantastic figures show once again how central Kelvingrove is to the life of Glasgow.
"It is a delightful surprise, however, to welcome the millionth visitor so soon - less than 10 weeks after reopening."
Mr Ross told BBC Scotland: "I used to come here quite often, so I thought it would be nice to bring the kids along and let them see the museum and some of the exhibits."
It is now hoped the Kelvingrove will pass the two million mark in its first year since reopening, making it Scotland's biggest visitor attraction.
The evening event was compered by River City star Joyce Falconer, aka Roisin.
Carol Smillie, Shereen Nanjiani and BBC Scotland's David Robertson introduced the paintings.
The high profile event was raising cash for seven charities.
These included CHAS, ChildLine, Maggie's Centre, Meningitis Trust, The Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice, The Third Step and Yorkhill Children's Foundation.
Paintings of Billy Connolly running from the Clyde semi-naked and Alex Kapranos singing into a deep fried mars bar were among those auctioned off on the night.
A Peter Howson original canvas was also up for sale.
