About Glasgow Museums Resource Centre

Glasgow Museums Resource Centre (GMRC) is the store for the museums' collections when they're not on display at our venues.

It's a vast building with rooms full of fantastic objects, from animals to armour, fine art to fossils, and much, much more. The main collections stored here are Archaeology, Art and Painting, Arms and Armour, Natural History, Transport and Technology and World Cultures.

The 17 purpose-built and environmentally controlled storage ‘pods’ house around 1.4 million objects. In most museums a tiny proportion of objects are on display and museum stores are rarely accessible to the public. Glasgow is not the only city to have a store like this, but our store is exceptional. For one thing, it is the store for one of the finest museum collections in Europe. GMRC is different – you can explore this very special building and its’ collections through a wide range of tours, talks and activities for all ages, including school visits and events for families with children.

It is FREE to visit GMRC, but all visits must be booked in advance.
