  • Free entry and it was nice to see the artefacts from various religions on display next to each other. Wasn't a huge amount to see, but it's free entry and well worth a look if you're passing by.  more »

  • Very, very kind staff and diverse, inclusive exhibits. I came in expecting mostly Christianity-related exhibits, but was pleasantly surprised by just how many religions were represented in art, culture, and history in the museum, and all in interesting ways. I would definitely go back if returning to Glasgow.
  • For such a seemingly small museum- there's quite a lot to see! Even if you're not religious, this museum encompasses not just a wide range of global religions, but culture too. And, if you climb up all the way to the top, there's a wonderfully picturesque view of the Necropolis too!
  • Intetesting, educating, pleasant atmosphere. I enjoyed 'Angels around us' and other exibitions. And the museum shop has good, less standard selection.
  • I didn't get much out of most of the displays, but the information about the neighbouring Necropolis, in an upstairs room with a panoramic view towards the Necropolis and Cathedral, was interesting.
  • Opened my eyes to amount of religions eyc . Educational and free
