  • This is a fascinating place to visit, even if you just go to look at the architecture of the building or the view over the Necropolis from the top window... make a point of going if you are visiting t...  more »
  • A museum that compares the various religions in all aspects of human life, marriage, birth, growth, death is definitely a great idea, space isn't huge, so perhaps reflects some crowding in places. I really liked the fact that it is completely impartial regarding religious views, but it still expanded in my opinion.

  • Actually one of the most unbiased museums I have ever been to. Quite a neutral view on all major religions with a lot of exponents and interactive parts. Loved it!
  • Near Glasgow Cathedral and the Necropolis, this lovely little museum is set on three floors. It includes history and artefacts of the main religions and is very interesting. It includes a shop, cafe and a beautiful, small Zen garden. One would need a deeper regard for religion than I to really appreciate it. Certainly, though, if in the area it's worth a visit. Note: Just across the street is the 'oldest house in Glasgow' (see pic).
  • Fabulous place! Wish I could visit every day. Quiet, peaceful, informative. Super delightful. And of course, the staff is extremely friendly.
  • Absolutely fascinating place, interesting artifacts, thought provoking and free. A real gem.
  • Simplistic museum of religion, does a good job of being inclusive, but there's not much depth

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
