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.

  • This is a very good museum about the people of Glasgow, and the struggles of the poor. I really like this museum. There is a beautiful winter garden out back with palm trees and lots of lovely plants. There is a cage, but you can also bring your own lunch as there are sitting areas and tables for all. Very friendly place. Clean restrooms, a little cafe too. We did not eat here but the cage looks nice, basic coffee and sandwiches. There is an elevator and I saw a few people in wheelchairs and walkers, so it's very accessible for all I believe. Also, this is the warmest place we have been while here in Glasgow during a cold spell. The winter garden is so very lovely. The gentleman at the door is so kind, pointed out the old carpet factory across the street which has a German brewery where you can get a pint and some food. He was so welcoming and nice to talk to. Glasgow folks are so kind.

  • Has been on my to do list a while and today was the day. Not disappointed. Lovely building, great exhibition. Really great to show the kids the ' single end' among other things from days gone by. Loved the history of the palace itself donated to the people of Glasgow ' for ever and ever'. Guy at the door was so welcoming as was the guy in the shop. Great personalities. Can't say much about the cafe. It's a great setting but definitely poorly organised. Small queue yet took an age to serve each customer. Did feel a time and motion study could fix that Almost gave up but could see the soup looked lovely - and it was. Would've liked a kids portion size of soup for young kids but not available. Shame. I will return to the palace as lots of bits n pieces of interest still to read. On a sunny day there is a fabulous play park near the entrance that would be a great stop for the kids. Please leave a like.

  • The site was being prepared for a pop concert, so we didn't get the full advantage of the area. The greenhouse of plants was fascinating, but we weren't as impressed with the history of Glasgow exhibition. It seemed to lack a timeline of the history as the displays were a bit random.

  • It's situated at a pretty convenient location, so I think there's no reason not to pop by and take a look. You get to see the history of Glasgow and its struggles and resurgence. You also get to see how Glasgow developed alongside the river Clyde.

  • Great museum detailing the history of Glasgow and it's people - and like all of our museums, it's free! (Other cities could learn from that...) The winter gardens are also a lovely place to have a quick wander round. The viewing gallery with view of the green and the city is definitely worth a look too.
