Collections and Research

Glasgow owns one of the finest collections in Europe, but with the current gallery space, only 2% of this vast and varied collection can be displayed at any one time.   However, our state-of-the-art museums store, Glasgow Museums Resource Centre (GMRC), is publicly accessible so there are lots of opportunities to discover the wonderful objects we look after.

Glasgow Museums also has an online collections search facility, the Collections Navigator, which allows you to browse through some of the many objects we have.


Glasgow Museums' Research Department is based at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre and they conduct a variety of research projects.  There are also  facilities and support available for those wishing to research parts of the collection further, whether for personal interest or academic purposes.
