The museum tells about the history of the people of Glasgow. The people lived in great poverty and squalor. Fun looking back how they lived and worked.

The People's Palace & Winter Gardens are located at Glasgow Green and are an interesting to sit and relax in the indoor gardens to have a coffee or snack at the cafe there. Back into the main building you see a lot of historical items...More

After having to walk from outside the grounds due to a festival taking over the Green, this was a lovely surprise. The Winter Garden provided a warm place to sit and have a coffee. The Palace is spectacular and worth the visit.

Review by Dr Sim. You can see this on the Hop On Hop Off Bus. The fountain is beautiful. Good for a selfie. A tourist could take a walk if he/she has the time. Regards Dr Sim

Outstanding example of a terracotta fountain - the largest of its kind in the world. If you're a fan of terracotta and a fan of fountains then this is the place to be. A Glasgow must see.

So many stories abound about life in Glasgow. But this place is a folk museum that tells it how it was, no holds barred, and covers all about life in Glasgow from the 1880s to the 1980s. Little vignette of rooms where it is now...More

Good summary of Glaswegian life since the 1800's. How the city developed to what it is today, on everyday life, labour, housing, etc.
