Viewing the Collection

Glasgow Museums has a vast collection, and yet only 2% of the collection can be on display at our museums across the City at any one time. The rest can be seen by visiting Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, the Glasgow Museums' store. 

Access to the collections is FREE and available to anyone, although booking is required.  There are public tours every day at 2.45pm and group visits can also be arranged.   

Requests are available to see specific objects and collections in the Study Room.  Book online through the Collections Navigator or contact our Collections Research Assistant.

The Study Room is open:

  • Tuesday to Thursday from 10am–4pm
  • Friday from 11am–4pm

Please note that there are limited refreshment facilities at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre, although catering facilities are available locally.​​
