About Us

Glasgow Museums offer something for everyone. Whether you want to find out more about an artist, come with your class to see how we used to live, see the latest in contemporary art, or simply meet a friend for coffee, there is a museum for you!
Admission to all our museums is free, most have café facilities and a shop, and we warmly welcome children. A small entry charge may apply to some temporary exhibitions. The National Trust for Scotland manages Pollok House on behalf of Glasgow City Council and charges apply during summer months.
The museums opening times are 10.00am - 5.00pm, except Fridays and Sundays, when the museums are open from 11.00am - 5.00pm. 

Scotland Street School Museum, St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, Provand's Lordship, Glasgow Museums Resource Centre and the People's Palace  are closed to the public on Mondays however the Winter Gardens, adjacent to the People's Palace are open 7 days a week. 


The Burrell Collection temporarily closed in October 2016 until 2020 for refurbishment and redisplay.
