People's Palace & Winter Gardens

[People's Palace and Winter Gardens]

Standing proud in the middle of Glasgow Green is the People's Palace: a huge, ruddy-bricked structure dating to Victorian times. Fittingly given its name, the palace houses a museum documenting the colourful social history of Scotland's largest city, or to describe it another way, Glaswegian life from the perspective of its people. Adjoining the museum is a large conservatory containing exotic plants which share the floor with a café and occasional events space. An hour should be enough time to browse the three levels - all free of charge, though donations are welcome.
