Glasgow Museums has Loads of Festive Fun

​Glasgow Museums are offering more than 30 free events in the countdown to Christmas and throughout the festive period. Activities range from a Christmas Festival at Riverside Museum to the hugely popular Santa School at Scotland Street School Museum to the incredible and fascinating 12 Days of Christmas Tour via Glasgow Museums objects at GMRC.
The Christmas countdown gets underway this weekend (26/27 November) at the Riverside Christmas Festival which features their traditional Christmas Market in the Victorian Street alongside the chance for younger visitors to make their own decorations. The following weekend is the Traditional Christmas Fair and Christmas Market at Riverside where all the rides are free.
Santa School returns to Scotland Street School Museum on 3, 11, 17 and 18 December teaching families and children what makes Santa so special. All the graduates receive their own special Santa School certificate for what will surely be the best day ever spent at school.
Also coming to a museum near you are card making, Winter Wonderland Workshops, a session on ‘Elfie Selfies’ and learn how to make Christmas Tree angels from fir cones and shuttlecocks. The amazing 12 Days of Christmas tour told through collection objects returns to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre after Christmas.
Councillor Archie Graham OBE, Depute Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow Life said: “Glasgow Museums always offers something really special and the festive programme is a very clear example of the breadth and depth they offer. Whether you need a break from Christmas shopping, are looking to make some totally unique festive decorations or are after a wonderful Christmas gift, then Glasgow Museums has it all. There’s also a great chance to find out exactly what’s behind some of our great Christmas traditions while exploring Glasgow’s world class museums collection.”
