The Burrell Collection is one of the greatest art collections ever amassed by one person, consisting of more than than 9,000 objects spanning 6,000 years of history. The Burrell Collection reopened on 29 March 2022 following an extensive refurbishment and redisplay.
The Burrell Collection is housed in an award-winning building in the heart of Pollok Country Park, Glasgow's largest green space. The Collection is named after its donor, the shipping magnate Sir William Burrell.
The displays range from work by major artists including Rodin, Degas and Cézanne to important examples of late medieval art, Chinese and Islamic art, ancient civilizations and more. Regular temporary exhibitions are hosted at The Burrell which also runs an extensive programme of events and activities for children.
