The City of Glasgow owns one of the richest collections in Europe, displayed in 8* museums and galleries across the city.

From paintings by Degas and Cezanne to Sir Roger the Elephant, Charles Rennie Mackintosh furniture to a real Spitfire, fabulous arms and armour to cutting edge contemporary art, Glasgow Museums have objects and exhibits to fire your imagination.

Admission to Glasgow Museums is free and most have a café where you can relax and enjoy a coffee or lunch during your visit. Children are particularly welcome at Glasgow Museums - most of the exhibitions have events programmes especially for them, and the Learning and Access team run activities and workshops during the school holidays too. And if you didn't have enough time for the gift shop, don't worry - there's also a Glasgow Museums store in St Enoch Shopping Centre to pick up the perfect gift.

There are exciting programmes of exhibitions and events throughout the year at all of the museums, so go along and be inspired!
