St Mungo Museum Of Religious Life And Art


2 Castle Street, Glasgow, City Of Glasgow, G4 0RH

    This award-winning museum is named after Glasgow’s patron saint who brought the Christian faith to Scotland in the sixth century.

    The museum is a haven of tranquility in a busy city and its galleries are filled with works of art and artifacts that explore the importance of religion in people’s lives across the world and across time.

    The building in which the museum is housed was designed in the Scottish baronial style and was intended to reflect the architecture of the Bishops’ Castle, the site which the museum occupies.
