Love the Burrell Collection and surrounding country park as it offers a unique display that you can't get anywhere else in Glasgow. Unfortunately closed unti 2020 for refurbishments but well worth a visit when it re-opens.

Set in lovely park grounds, suggest you park outside and walk in (if not a Glasgow rainy day). Always something interesting to see or find. Peaceful too. Cafe nice too.

Burrell donated this collection to the city and it never fails to impress the diversity of pieces and the unusual things he collected. From door arches, egyptian treasures to modern sculputers there is something for everyone. Not a huge museum and you will be round...More

An eclectic and frequently changing exhibit accumulated by one of Glasgow's great magpie collectors.. I've visited many times and always see something new. A visit at dusk gives some fantastic photo opportunities of the lit glass building "floating" in Pollock Park... and a daytime visit...More
