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.

  • Lovely architecture. Free entry. Nice place to bring family. Big grounds on the outside for picnic when the weather is nice and a lovely playground nearby. Lots of free street parking along the Museum. There’s a nice cafe in the winter garden. The display is great to introduce the little ones with some of the things we grew up with from the early 1960s-1990s.

  • Great history of a Glasgow with a few very in depth exhibits. Only problem I have is that it feels like it needs updating - the music section stops in the mid 1990s and misses a large new movement. Winter Gardens are lovely and fascinating.

  • This is one of the best places to visit in Glasgow for visitors and locals alike. Great social history exhibits and great fun too. Right beside are the winter gardens, Glasgow Green, the river Clyde, Templetons Carpet Factory building - marvellous, West Brewery and restaurant. All this within a few minutes walk of all the facilities the centre of Glasgow has to offer. What's not to like?

  • Full of great exhibits from The early Glasgow right up until modern Glasgow. Good range of stories virtual audio and staff on hand to answer any questions. Its free but you can make a small donation that helps to maintain current exhibits and bring in more.... Well worth a visit and onky 10 minute walk from city centre

  • Sweet, small, historical. The place is inside a big glass dome with a lot of tropical trees. A nice warm place especially in the autumn and winter time. The old Museum Part upstairs throws you back in time with a lot of old artefacts from 50-100 years ago.
