Glasgow Museums are a great place for groups to visit and there are various ways that we can support you. We are now accepting pre-booked visits for organised groups. Groups should follow the latest coronavirus information for the venue they are visiting.

We can assist those bringing children’s groups (Scouts, Out-of-School, Care Groups), youth groups, community groups and older adults such as those from care homes. Small groups are often able to participate in our public programme which includes talks, tours and family workshops.

Larger groups should call ahead and let us know you are coming, even if you’re just having a look around one of our museums. Whilst we may not be able to accommodate larger groups within our public programme, we may be able to offer something specific for your group.

Out of school care groups

Out of school care groups are welcome to visit our museums on a self-led basis. As some of our museums can become very busy during holiday periods, it is helpful if you can call and let us know you are coming. We sometimes offer workshops specifically for out of school groups to book – if you would like to be added to our database for details of forthcoming programmes, please contact and ask to be added to the out of school care database.

Handling Kits

The Open Museum has a fantastic range of themed handling kits which you can borrow. These boxes of museum objects can be used to start conversations, reminisce and bring learning to life.

Self-led Resources

Some of our venues have self-led resources which can be used by visiting groups. These include:
