The nice little museum is situated near the Cathedral and worth a shorter or longer visit. If you do not know much about the religion of this world it is a must, if you know already more than the basics it is an interesting diversion.

This free museum is across from Glasgow cathedral and the Necropolis and Provand's Lordship. It houses a comprehensive collection of global religions but focuses on artifacts from Glasgow cathedral and neighboring neolithic, Viking and early Christian religious buildings.

Free entry or by donation. The very friendly guide was kind enough to give me some information or where to get more and advice on where to start. Enjoyed every level and the different installations. Worth a visit.

Not sure what I expected from a Museum of Religious Life and Art but found it a bit stuffy - some sections with artefacts and descriptions, some religious information and some things that just seemed not to fit in or out just of place. I...More
