The Burrell Collection
With a National Art Pass you get
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
With over 9,000 objects from across the globe, the impressive Burrell Collection covers five millennia of art history.
Nestled in Glasgow's largest park, the Burrell Collection is home to a trove of exquisite objects once owned by Sir William and Constance Burrell, ranging from works by major artists including Cézanne, Degas and Rodin to important artefacts from ancient civilizations, late medieval art, and more. It is also home to one of the most significant holdings of Chinese art in the UK.
Following a major refurbishment and redisplay which celebrates the diversity of the museum's rich collection, it was reopened by King Charles III in March 2022. The reimagined display was co-designed with a range of local community groups to ensure that it showcases diverse and inclusive perspectives. And over 100 pieces of digital interpretation, from immersive experiences to interactive games, has been created to provide context to the collection. Since re-opening its doors, it has welcomed over 500,000 visitors, rejuvenating Glasgow in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and contributing £20m to the city's economy.
The Burrell Collection sits inside of Pollok Country Park; the large windows throughout the purpose-built museum afford wonderful views of the woodland setting. Make the most of your visit with a walk in the surrounding gardens.
