The People's Palace

From a reconstructed 1930s house to Billy Connolly’s big banana boots, the museum’s unique collection reveals how Glaswegians have lived, worked and played. Like all Glasgow museums, entry is free.

The Palace is on Glasgow Green, a 25-minute walk from Glasgow Queen Street station, but there’s plenty here to make the walk worthwhile. At the rear, you’ll find the Winter Gardens, a dramatic greenhouse filled with exotic palms and plants, and a lovely little café. Out front, the Doulton Fountain – a highly decorated five-tier fountain that’s thought to be the largest of its type in the world.
