The Burrell Collection, in the heart of Pollok Country Park, houses a unique collection of art in a beautiful woodland setting.
The Burrell Collection houses a unique collection of over 8,000 objects gifted to Glasgow by Sir William Burrell in 1944. Focusing on late medieval and early Renaissance Europe, it also contains important examples of Chinese and Islamic art, French Paintings and Ancient Civilisations. It includes work by major artists including Rodin, Degas and Cézanne.
Through this donation, the City of Glasgow acquired one of the greatest collections ever created by one person. Sir William Burrell’s collection is a must-see for any visitor to Glasgow.
The Burrell hosts major temporary exhibitions throughout the year. There are also regular family-friendly activities and hands-on workshops to enjoy during your visit.
