  • The Museums Resource Centre is essentially a big warehouse for all the items in the Glasgow Museums collections which are not currently on display in one of Glasgow's museums. Visits are by arrangement, and if you can I recommend asking for a visit focussed on an area which particularly interests you. I have visited twice, once with a focus on the maritime collections. If you like ship models, you will need all your time to wander round the storeroom which houses these - there are just so many and the range is wide. Or maybe you like what as kids we referred to as the "Stuffies" the examples of the taxidermists' art - what ids at Kelvingrove is just a fraction of the collection - GMRC has a lot more stacked floor to ceiling. The Art collection is stored on huge pull out double sided frames, so you can see everything arts and all - and mind boggling it is. Don't pass up a chance to visit this. Please leave a like.
  • Really interesting for kids and adults alike. Great to see beyond the scenes, and the guides are really helpful and knowledgeable.
  • Lovely, educational way to spend an hour being guided through priceless treasures being stored in this wonderful eclectic collection of art, fossils, minerals, natural history etc.
  • Great place for a day out & doesn't cost anything, Facebook page keeps up to date with weekly entertainment
  • An Informative and educational trip conducted by enthusiastic staff
