At The Burrell Collection, see one of the world's greatest individual accumulations of art. Wealthy shipping magnate Sir William Burrell acquired some 8,000 works during the 19th and 20th centuries and gave them to the city of Glasgow. View some of them--such as artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome and paintings from 19th-century French artists--on one of the two daily themed tours. The collection is comprehensive, covering everything from ceramics and weapons to tapestries and stained glass. The museum also hosts temporary exhibits, so see what's on before you visit. You might also enjoy one of the scheduled talks or workshops. Before you head to Glasgow, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Glasgow trip itinerary maker site, to make sure you see all that Glasgow has to offer, including The Burrell Collection.

Currently closed. This is a great museum, but it's closed until some time in 2020 for a major refurbishment.
