Paisley Museum And Art Galleries


High Street, Paisley, Renfrewshire, PA1 2BA

    Paisley Museum opened in 1871. The building was designed by the well-known Glasgow architect John Honeyman and paid for by Sir Peter Coats of the famous Coats thread manufacturing family.

    The museum houses a wealth of treasures, from Ancient Egypt, the World famous collection of Paisley shawls, 19th century Scottish paintings and artefacts from the social, industrial and natural history of the area.

    Any visit to Paisley should include a stop at this imposing neo-classical building to see some of the world largest collection of Paisley shawls. The galleries also contain an impressive range of Scottish art from Raeburn and Ramsay to the Glasgow Boys and Paisley's own John Byrne.
