The museum is named after Glasgow's patron saint who brought the Christian faith to Scotland in the 6th century. It is built on the site of the medieval Bishops’ Castle and is designed in its style. The galleries are full of displays, objects and stunning works of art that explore the importance of religion in peoples’ lives across the world and across time.

The venue aims to promote understanding and respect between people of different faiths and those of none and offers something for everyone. There are regular events, from family-friendly activities to talks about culture and religion in Scotland today. Or you can relax in the popular cafe which opens out to the first Zen garden in Britain.

The museum sits across from Provand’s Lordship, which is the oldest house in Glasgow, and alongside the Glasgow Cathedral. Why not take a trip to visit all three?
