Die Sammlung umfasst Wandteppiche, Glas, Keramik, Skulpturen und Gemälde aus Europa und fernöstlichen Ländern.
The burrell museum in Pollock park at moment its being revamped. This building set stunning background park was purpose build just to hold Sir William Burrell art collection. He collected paintings, artworks, funiture, plates, silverwear, rugs, you name it he had it. stunning collection art collected by one man who had passion. Well worth a visit when your in Glasgow. Its free entry just check to confirm is open.
Brilliant. The whole history of Scotland is played out here. Real shame it closed down. And for FOUR YEARS no less. What kind of building takes four years to renovate? I mean they built the Burj Khalifa in 5 years... and that's an 828 meter tall super-skyscraper. O well... still gets 5 from me. Hope when it re-opens it will be even better.
Just a warning that this place is shut down till 2020. ⚠ When it was open it was very good!
I had really fond memories of this place from my childhood, but when I returned in the late summer of 2016, I was sad to see that the building is in disrepair. I think it's now closed for refurbishment. There's a really interesting collection. I love being able to look through the big glass windows to the forest beyond.
The burrell collection has got lots off places in it it's got museums play areas big fancy greenhouses best but i liked was the water on a sunny day there was a swing from a tree then u jump in water to cool off
One of my fav museums: can't wait to see the refurb
