Neil McDonald, 50, who fell in love with the group when he was 15, is displaying his vast collection of memorabilia until February.
He has a life-long collection of albums, posters, rare cassettes and even a Christmas card from former lead singer Bon Scott, who died in 1980.
Mr McDonald said: "Apart from a small exhibition I have in Kirriemuir, my collection mostly sits in boxes in my house.
"This way people will get to share in the things I own and other people can enjoy it. That is why I'm doing this: for the band and other fans. Kelvingrove is the finest place it could be exhibited."
The band have a close connection with Glasgow because its founding brothers Angus and Malcolm Young were born in the city.
Mr McDonald saw the first AC/DC televised performance in 1976 and was instantly hooked.
He has spent the past 30 years tracking down rare items related to the band, from importing LPs from Australia, where they are based, to meeting the group to get autographs.
After one meeting, in 1978, Bon Scott sent him a Christmas card from Australia. It is now the collector's most treasured possession, but he also has a rare cassette, 1978's 12 of the Best, which was pulled by the record label before release.
He has one of only a handful of the cassettes that were rescued from being destroyed.
Highway To Hell: An AC/DC Collector's Journey is on show in Kelvingrove Museum's community section, which is a space for amateur groups and individuals to showcase their displays.
Kelvingrove is also currently hosting AC/DC: Scotland's Family Jewels exhibition, which is on loan from Australia.
Mr McDonald, originally from Glasgow's West End but who now lives in Edinburgh, has carefully chosen the exhibits that will form his display, but says he has enough to rival the official collection.
He said: "It's much easier now with the internet but, initially, collecting involved placing requests in magazines and newspapers and hoping for a response.
"It could take months to get one item. The challenge and the thrill of the chase was definitely part of the appeal.
"But it's all about AC/DC's music. They are very easy on the ear and great performers – the whole package."
