Talks and Events

Families

Give us your Views! 

The Burrell Collection is currently working towards a large scale building renovation and redisplay of its collections. We are looking for families to help us develop our new displays. We want to know what families like and don’t like about the Museum. The project is at its exciting first stages, and we need your help to make important choices about what the displays will be like.

If you would be happy to  give us your views and thoughts about the Burrell Collection for families, and are able to attend a session for about one hour as a family group (at least 1 adult and 1 child under the age of 16 from the same family) on Sunday 27th April 2014​, then we would love to hear from you! 

Please email us at visitorstudies@glasgowlife.org.uk by 31st of March to register your interest in attending and we will be in touch!

Films, Talks, Walks and Tours

Along with our Family Films, we also show Classic Cinema: Films for grown-ups, on the third Sunday of every month, with an additional screening on the Wednesday prior. ​

There is a series of weekly talks, every Wednesday, given by curators and other museum staff.  These Curator's Favourites talks give an expert insight into specific objects at the Burrell.

The museum also hosts Themed Tours given by our dedicated team of Volunteer Guides, as they focus on different aspects of our collection.   We also offer daily guided tours that can bring fresh understanding to even the most seasoned visitor.  The tours are free, and there are two scheduled each day; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. The Burrell Guides are trained volunteers. 

We also run enjoyable monthly walks around Pollok Park, with specific themes and objectives.

Workshops

We run monthly Adult Art Workshops at the Burrell Collection.  We also run blocks of weekly classes from oil painting to calligraphy
