The People’s Palace will then close at 5pm on 30 December 2018 and will remain closed for approximately 12 weeks to allow essential building works to be carried out as a result of the Winter Gardens closure. So don’t miss your opportunity to visit one of Glasgow’s favourite museums over the festive period ahead of this planned closure. We are due to re-open at Easter with some exciting refreshed displays for you to enjoy. If you would like to help support the People’s Palace and the ongoing programme of display changes … please donate here.
The People’s Palace is set in historic Glasgow Green. It is home to a collection of objects, photographs, prints and film which give a unique view into how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in years gone by to the present day.
The Winter Gardens are set to the side of the People's Palace where you can wander among the exotic palms and plants or enjoy a coffee or lunch at the café. Outside, you can admire the restored Doulton Fountain and relax in the beautiful surroundings of Glasgow Green, Glasgow's oldest public outdoor space.
Guide and assistance dogs are welcome.
