This is one of the lovliest museums i've ever visited. It is full of interesting opbjects and a good history is provided. Even the food court is light and airy and a pleasure to eat in.

Great walks for the whole family. I try to go every time I visit, but Glasgow does have lots of parks to chose from.

The Burrell is currently undergoing renovation and improvement and is closed, but a very small part of the collection is available for viewing in a gallery on the first floor of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The Burrell gift shop is also there.

We are sorry this Burrell is closed for so long. We enjoyed our lunch there - having seen round the whole place before, we purchased some items from the shop on our way out.
