Just like you, everyone at Glasgow Museums is trying to figure out how we make the most of this radical new way of living. We’re sure you’ll agree it’s not all easy.

Millions of people enjoy visiting our museums, taking part in activities, listening to talks and learning a little about our amazing collection. While our venues are closed we’re working hard to create online versions of some of the fun activities and engaging programmes you normally do inside a Glasgow museum.

Every day, Monday to Friday, we’ll share an object, story, picture or creative idea on our social channels. Some of you will already follow our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels. Others, like some of our team, are discovering the world of social media for the first time – if that’s you we’d encourage you to give it a go. Glasgow Museums is a great way to tip your toe in the water.
