The Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) warmly welcomes visitors from around the corner and around the world into their library and museum, which celebrates the lives and achievements of women.

As a finalist for the biggest museum prize in the world in 2018 (Art Fund Museum of the Year Prize) and the only museum of its kind in the UK, this is a lively and informative must-visit attraction.

Within a beautiful restored Edwardian building, there are cosy nooks to enjoy books, communal spaces to converse over a cuppa and a grand hall to attend one of their many events and talks.

Renowned for a wit and flair across everything they do, the GWL share stories from the past through heritage walks, bike rides and a treasure trove of archives, preserve the present through current exhibitions and shape the future by inspiring all who visit.
