People’s Palace

Glasgow life in the 20th century

Save to my Account

This purpose-built Victorian sandstone museum gives a flavour of Glasgow culture by looking the ordinary lives of its working East End population.

Exhibits may go back to the 12th century, but most of the social history is 19th and 20th: think temperance tracts, trade-union banners and suffragette posters.

Comedian Billy Connolly’s banana-shaped boots are here too.

Some tranquil and exotic Winter Gardens dwell in a large conservatory beside the museum – providing a very pleasant setting for the museum cafe.
