The Burrell Collection is part of Glasgow Museums and is free to visit.

Visit The Burrell Collection to see an astonishing range of beautiful objects from around the world. The collection is named after its donor, the shipping magnate Sir William Burrell. It’s one of the greatest collections ever created by one person, comprising over 8000 objects.

In the heart of Pollok Country Park, this award-winning building houses a unique collection in a beautiful woodland setting.

The Burrell Collection displays range from work by major artists including Rodin, Degas and Cézanne, to important examples of late medieval art, Chinese and Islamic art, Ancient Civilizations and more.

The Burrell Collection regularly hosts temporary exhibitions, and runs an extensive programme of events and activities for both adults and families with children.
