Glasgow Scotland Museums
Opened in Glasgow's West End in 1901, this world-class museum is housed in a stunning red sandstone building. Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in Glasgow in 1868 and his legacy is still remarkable in the city's skyline and museum galleries. The original architect and designer of Glasgow's Museum of Modern Art (GMA) is long dead, but his legacy remains and runs through our skyline, museum and gallery.
The museum in East Dunbartonshire, Glasgow, is a rich source of Springburn's local history and houses the world's largest collection of medieval and medieval art.
Museums and Galleries Scotland is one of the largest and most active museums and galleries in the UK and provides strategic development support to the sector. The vast park houses some of Scotland's most important museums, galleries and art galleries. It is set in a beautiful forest landscape with a number of venues that showcase the arts.

The Hunterian Museum in Glasgow is one of Scotland's most popular museums and the largest of its kind in the world. The museum opened in 1807 and is, as the tin says, the only museum in Scotland to be considered a natural fit for Glasgow's cultural wealth. It comprises a collection of over 1,000 objects from the 19th and early 20th centuries and houses a wide range of art, history, architecture and history of the city of Glasgow.
The Scotland Street School Museum is housed in an old school building designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and for many the building itself is as impressive as the collection, but it wants to be admired inside and out. The city prides itself on its rich Scottish heritage with several museums throughout the city, including the Glasgow Museum of Art, Scottish National Museum and Royal Scottish Museum. Dating back to 1471, this house stands on the site of one of Glasgow's oldest houses and houses some of Glasgow's most famous and historic buildings, including St Andrew's Cathedral and Glasgow Castle.
Scotland's beauty is worth a visit, but remember that Glasgow's vast treasures are not on display and there are no guided tours. The Glasgow Museums Resource Centre contains all the objects available online that you can browse and remember to visit them here. Join the Glasgow Museum of Art, the Scottish National Museum or the Royal Scottish Museum and become a regular visitor to one of Scotland's most popular museums.
Most museums in Glasgow are free, meaning you can enjoy local Scottish heritage and culture at no cost. With Scotland's many museums and galleries, there are also wonderful open spaces to enjoy with the whole family. Some have restaurants and cafes, for those who are tired after a strenuous walk. In addition, once we get out of the blockade, many of us plan to return to our favorite museum or gallery.
