Important Customer Information
Due to matters out with our control, Provand’s Lordship will be closed on Sunday 21 August. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. All other Glasgow Museums facilities will operate as normal, with the St Mungo Museum of Life and Religious Art available across the road from Provand’s Lordship.
Provand’s Lordship, which was built in 1471 as part of a hospital in the cathedral precinct, is one of only four surviving medieval buildings in Glasgow. Beautifully preserved, the “auld hoose” is furnished with a fine selection of 17th-century Scottish furniture donated by Sir William Burrell, and a series of historic royal portraits. The room settings give a flavour of household interiors around 1500 and 1700, so you can immerse yourself in medieval Glasgow with a visit to this fascinating building.
Behind the building sits the St Nicholas Garden, a medicinal herb garden which is an oasis of calm, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Find out more here
