The People’s Palace is closed for a major refurbishment


Situated at the heart of Glasgow Green, one of the city's oldest green spaces, The People's Palace is Glasgow's social history museum. It features a fascinating collection of objects, photographs, prints and film, exploring many stories of life in the city over the last two centuries.

When we reopen our doors, join us to learn more about the history of the city and how Glaswegians lived, worked and played.

Thanks to the recent funding secured from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, this exciting project can begin. This much-loved attraction will reopen, unveiling a reimagined and restored museum and glasshouse.

We are delighted this transformational project will protect this invaluable cultural and heritage asset for generations to come.
