Curator showing objects to visitors

The Burrell Collection

The Burrell Collection brings together masterpieces from all over the world. The stories that the Collection holds inspire and enrich the lives of our visitors young and old. The Collection is loved locally and respected worldwide, attracting visitors and conservators from around the globe.

Sir William Burrell left a lasting legacy to Glasgow by donating his magnificent Collection of some 9,000 objects to the people of Glasgow. This is your opportunity to be part of that legacy as we breathe new life into the internationally significant Collection to be enjoyed by future generations.

Sir William Burrell gave 9,000 gifts to Glasgow.  You only need to give one. 

The Burrell Collection is now open after undergoing a major refurbishment that will help ensure the collection, its listed home, and the history and stories it preserves, survive for the next 100 years.   

If you would like to make a donation, you help ensure more people have the opportunity to enjoy the collection, now and in the future. 

Please donate today - whatever you can afford will help preserve the Burrell's treasures.

Thank you
