Free attractions in Glasgow

Glasgow is a Scottish city that is worth visiting, although it is true that it does not have as much edge as Edinburgh, the capital. With 3 or 4 days it is possible to see its main attractions, most of which are free . Then I leave you with a list in which some of them appear:

Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum

In this gallery you will enjoy art exhibitions, design information and Charles Rennie MckIntosh. All while learning a little more history about Scotland.

Location: Argyle Street, Glasgow

The Burrell Collection

In total there are about 8,000 art objects on display. There are French paintings from the 19th century, important collections of oriental art, and sculptures by Rodin and Epstein.

Location: Pollok Country Park, 2060 Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow

The People’s Palace & Winter Gardens

It is a must to learn about the history of Glasgow, from 1750 to the present day. In addition, in the front of it we can delight in the Doulton fountain, the largest terracotta fountain in the world.

Location: Glasgow Green, Glasgow

Riverside Museum

It is one of the latest additions to Glasgow. It opened its doors to the public in June 2011 and has replaced the Transport Museum. Like that one, it shows an important collection of transport.

Location: Pointhouse Place, Glasgow

The College of Piping

It was founded in 1944 and has the privilege of being the oldest national institution for the teaching of Scottish bagpipes.

Glasgow cathedral

It is one of the most prominent medieval buildings in Scotland. It survived the reform of 1560 and is built on the burial site of St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow.

Glasgow City Chambers

They are the administrative headquarters of the City Council and have been behind them for more than 100 years. They are a magnificent example of 19th century architecture in Glasgow. Every day, if the activities of the City Council allow it, it is possible to attend a guided tour that is organized in two shifts, one in the morning and the other at noon.

Location: City Chambers, George Square, Glasgow

St. Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life & Art

It is a very interesting museum that explores the different religions from all over the world through art and objects. It is ideal for both believers and non-believers.

Glasgow Necropolis

It is the city of the dead, an example of somewhat macabre architecture and design that reflects Glasgow’s social and economic heritage.
