    The People's Palace in the Glasgow Green features an array of artifacts, paintings, photographs, film and interactive displays that explore the stories and social history of the people of Glasgow from 1750 to the end of the 20th century. Admire the exotic palms and plants of the nearby Winter Gardens and snap a picture in front of the restored Doulton Fountain, the largest terracotta fountain in the world.

    Located in Pollok Country Park, the Burrell Collection features a dazzlingly array of artifacts collected by the wealthy industrialist Sir William Burrell, who gifted it to the city in 1944. It features medieval art and Islamic art, ancient Egyptian and Chinese artifacts, Impressionist paintings, modern sculpture and much, much more.

    The Tenement House shows how Glaswegians lived in the 19th century and onwards, in tenement houses (otherwise known today as flats). This museum features old fixtures like coal fireplaces, gas lamps and other historic furnishings and memorabilia preserved by its former owner Miss Agnes Toward.
