Glasgow Museums Resource Centre

Glasgow Museums Resource Centre is the store for the museums' collections when they are not on display.
It is 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 are Art and Painting, Arms and Armour, Natural History, Technology and World Cultures. The 17 purpose-built and environmentally controlled storage ‘pods’ house around 1.4 million objects. In fact, only 2% of collections are on display and the majority of these objects are stored at the centre.

Accessing the Museum Store
Access to the museum store is by guided tour only. The What's on section has information on tours and workshops or you contact the venue for more details.

That's it for this month, see you all in a warmer April!
