This unique partnership between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, the University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland sees this historic building into an exciting new centre of cultural excellence providing collections’ storage, teaching and research, alongside a state-of-the-art Glasgow Club health and fitness centre.

Safe, secure and publicly accessible museum storage is being created for the internationally-important Hunterian and Glasgow Museum’s collections. Around 1.5million objects, currently stored in various locations around the city, will be relocated to the new facility. This includes the only surviving complete suite of interiors by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Mrs Cranston’s Ingram Street tearooms which will undergo conservation works in public view. The National Library of Scotland’ will also be partners in the project which will provide a new home for the Moving Image Archive as well as access to the Library's extensive digital collections.
