Peoples Palace - Review

The People's Palace in Glasgow, Scotland mainly functions as an exhibition hall and a glasshouse. Since the 1940s, it has been the museum of social history of the city. A beautiful recounting of the story of Glasgow has been done here; from 1750 to the present day. The museum attempts to display the link between the past, the present and the future through this exhibition which is very interesting to observe.

Recently restored the place is a definite must see. The winter gardens are certainly not to be missed. The green grass and the flower-beds are sure to leave you refreshed. If that isn’t enough they also have a café for those who want to grab a bite to eat. A number of cultural events take place and the museum regularly so, do check them out if you are on a visit.

Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Glasgow itinerary 7 days.

Peoples Palace, Glasgow Reviews

  • The best museum in Glasgow! I absolutely loved it! The staff is super nice so feel free to ask for anything. There's a great coffee shop inside so if you need a good cup of tea to beat the cold you're served! Easy to get there, it's set right in the middle of the park. Totally worth the visit. Ok for family, kids can learn a great deal! Recommend it, absolutely!

  • Great experience for all the family the excitement builds as you approach the wonderful fountain at the entrance, it's free which is brilliant for all, the glass house gardens and cafe are warm and welcoming with exploring the jungle for the young and peaceful relaxing seating beneath the verdant green canopy for the more mature.... The museum upstairs is full of historical Glaswegian delights..... Every one should pop in and say hello and if your of a mind drop a donation in the box as a thank you

  • The People's Palace in Glasgow Green is a museum exploring and celebrating people's lives throughout the City's long history. Set in a quirky building over 3 levels and with a herbaceous Winter Garden as an annex and also boasts an interesting fountain it gives a memorable sojourn through Glasgow life. It also has a cafe and gift shop and for the more energetic you can take a short walk through the park down to the river

  • At the people's palace there is a small museum about the lives of people in Glasgow and a winter garden, a large green house with many plants you would not expect to see in Scotland. The Winter Garden is very nice to spend some time walking around. The food sold in the cafe is very good and there is a wide range of options available.

  • This provides an interesting look at Glasgow over the years, including a re-creation of a single-end flat, and a local jail cell, as well as the local dance hall. The garden area is a nice place to sit and have a snack or a cup of tea.
