The People’s Palace has closed for a major refurbishment - reopening 2027.

Thanks to the recent funding secured from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the next stage of 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.

Find out more here.

The People's Palace 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. All set against the backdrop of historic Glasgow Green.
