Re-opened in March 2022 after an ambitious refurbishment, Glasgow’s Burrell Collection allows visitors for the first time to explore all three floors in the building, set out as galleries, visible stores and special exhibition spaces. This incredible collection holds treasures from all over the world, including 5,000 year-old porcelain from China, paintings by renowned French artists including Manet, Cézanne and Degas and medieval artefacts such as stained glass, armour and tapestries. The Burrell was named as the Art Fund Museum of the Year 2023.  We will also take the opportunity to discover some of Glasgow’s other great art treasures, such as those housed within the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, where notable works of art from across Britain and Europe are featured alongside a diverse collection of exhibits. Nearby is the Hunterian, Scotland’s oldest public museum and home to over a million items, including some outstanding works of art. Housed in a magnificent neo-classical building in the centre of Glasgow is the Gallery of Modern Art, a world class art museum which borrows and collects artworks from all around the world, while at Holmwood House we explore the classical elegance of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thompson’s finest domestic creation. Our tour concludes at the House for an Art Lover, built in the 1990s to a design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh from 1901.
