GMRC is the store for the museums' collections when they are not on display at our venues.
It is a vast building with rooms full of fantastic objects, from animals to armour, fine art to fossils, and much, much more. The main collections stored here are Art and Painting, Arms and Armour, Natural History, Technology and World Cultures.
The 17 purpose-built and environmentally controlled storage ‘pods’ house around 1.4 million objects. In fact, only 2% of our collections are on display and the majority of these objects are stored here.
Glasgow Museums Resource Centre is different – you can explore this very special building and its’ collections through a wide range of tours, talks and activities for all ages, including school visits and events for families with children.
Guide and assistance dogs are welcome.
If you use British Sign Language, you can watch a British Sign Language introduction to Glasgow Museums Resource Centre.
