Having been born in this wonderful city in the early 50's and leaving in the late 50's, and going back frequently since the 90', I thought it was time to visit this place. I was back in Glasgow to celebrate my 60th birthday where I was born. Well what a surprise we had from the hustle and bustle of a large metrpolis to the tranqil peace and quiet of Glasgow Green. What really impressed me upon arrival was the truly magnifcent fountain with Queen Victoria as the centre attraction with statues of someone from each of Britain's colonies. The museum is free to enter and is best entered round the side of the building, where you walk right into the Winter Gardens, what a wonderfull relaxing feel the gardens had. You have a choice to walk around and look at the plants and trees or have a cuppa at the cafe and wonder at the beauty of it all. Once finished you then enter the main building and learn how tough life was in this city growing up in the tenements (as I did). There were interactive displays, film clips. Pictures on the walls all over the place. The layout of a single end kitchenette, really lots of history to be learnt.
