The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum houses treasures from throughout the ages with arms and armaments featuring heavily alongside natural history collections. There is also a huge art collection.

Next up is the Riverside Museum, a multi-award-winning space designed by legendary architect Zaha Hadid. Exhibits focus on the transport history of Scotland.

If you are into anthropology, check out the Hunterian Museum. The artifacts were donated in 1783 by William Hunter, a renowned anatomist and physician, and cover archaeology, anatomy and nature.

Provand’s Lordship is a medieval house museum preserved as it was at the time it was built in 1741. The old furniture is a highlight. Just next door to Provand’s Lordship is the St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, which covers all the major religions in the world.

Another highlight is the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens, which combines a museum and a glasshouse. Exhibits tell the story of the population of Glasgow from 1750 to the present, and is found in Glasgow Green, the oldest park in the city.
