Spending a 3 day trip to Glasgow this was top of list for a visit. Such a shame that when we arrived we found it had closed just 2 weeks earlier until 2020! for renovations.Disappointed.But what a delightful parkland setting,lots of parking,dog walkers paradise.

A reflective space on a summer evening so close to ultra urban carelessness yet so very relaxing. Green open space full of happy, so friendly people. I cannot wait for next summer

Burrel Collection can be really fascinating if you have never been anywhere else, but if you have seen some really nice art collections you'll be missing something. Anyway Ballet dancers by Degas, Rembrandt, several other paintings and stone vase stolen from Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli are worth the visit.

I enjoyed visiting the Burrell Collection and learning of how this collection came into existence. There was so much to see from art/artifacts from ancient civilizations, oriental art, medieval and post-medieval European art and more. The history of this collection is so rich.

Quite a hike in the park from a suburban train station for this small and medicre collection. A roomful of impressionist gems, a few ancient artifacts of interest, some overexposed Rodins, but that's it. Not a must see, only do it if you have extra time.

The 4 years the Burrell Collection will be closed will cause a huge gap in Glasgow's Museum culture. As with most of the museums here the Burrell has free entry and a superb collection that rivals many of the overpriced museums elsewhere. Thankfully on my latest return visit to Glasgow I made the Burrell visit with one week to spare.... More

The Burrell is a must see in Glasgow, beautifully housed in stunning peaceful surrounds in a purpose built building this collection is fascinating to and to be enjoyed by all ages and interests.
