Burrell Collection

Glasgow is justifiably proud of the Burrell Collection, a varied and idiosyncratic collection gifted to the nation by industrialist Sir William Burrell in 1944.

From rare paintings by Degas and Cézanne, to Islamic calligraphy, Roman statues, Renaissance tapestries, stained glass and architectural relics from medieval buildings, a wander around this eclectic collection reveals the extraordinary depth of Sir William’s passion as an avid collector.

You can also see atmospheric rooms re-created from the Burrells' castle home, authentically furnished in the Gothic style Sir William favored. Stop for lunch in the museum’s cafe, or pack a picnic to enjoy in the expansive grounds.

Please note: The Burrell Collection is currently closed for renovation. The reopening is scheduled for spring 2021.
