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.
