With such a range of museums and educational events in Glasgow, The Skinny is here to help you to increase your knowledge and expand your mind.
The Riverside Museum was named European Museum of the Year in 2013, centred around shipping, transport and life in Glasgow. It includes the three-masted museum ship Glenlee, and the Glasgow Museum of Transport. The social history of Glasgow is also evident at The People’s Palace in historic Glasgow Green. And those interested in education will be indulged at the Scotland Street School Museum, which includes the chance to dress as a pupil from the past.
Hampden Park is home to the Scottish Football Museum, including the oldest cap, match ticket, and trophy, and The Championship of the World Trophy from the 1888 victory of Renton over West Bromwich Albion.
In addition to the fine works collected in Glasgow Art Galleries and Exhibitions, various works are on display at other locations. That includes a collection of seventeenth-century Scottish furniture at the Provand’s Lordship, one of the few medieval buildings still in existence in Glasgow.
Grand country house life is demonstrated by Pollok House, a 10-minute walk from the famed Burrell Collection, and the National Museum of Rural Life showcases the history of agriculture at Wester Kittochside farm.
