The People’s Palace tells the story of Glasgow and its people, while the adjacent Winter Gardens is filled with exotic palms and plants.
Set on historic Glasgow Green, the People’s Palace tells the story of Glasgow and its people from 1750 to the present day.
The city’s social history can be explored through a wealth of historic artifacts, paintings, prints and photographs, film and interactive computer displays. The exhibits give a wonderful insight into how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in years gone by.
Outside the Winter Gardens, the restored Doulton Fountain stands pride of place on Glasgow Green, the oldest public space in Glasgow.
The People’s Palace is currently closed to allow essential building works to be carried out as a result of the Winter Gardens closure. It is due to re-open Easter 2019 with some exciting refreshed displays for you to enjoy.
The Winter Gardens is closed indefinitely.
