“Fun Time Out”

Glasgow Museums Resource Centre
Ranked #89 of 338 things to do in Glasgow
Attraction details
Reviewed November 12, 2013

My dad and I went on a tour, it lasted an hour and a bit. We only saw one pod and had to book in advance. The staff were wonderful and very informative. There are usually around 15 people per group.

There are 17 'pods' full of the things that should be in museums but don't currently have space, or are taking a break or are being fixed up due to age etc.

Bags and jackets can't be taken into the pod, but there are free lockers available where you put your stuff in and you keep the key. The pods are climate controlled (rather comfortably too).

A REALLY good time out, I will be going back. But I will ask if you can take photo's, not sure if it's allowed or not...

We went to view one particular painting that was in storage at the centre. We had to book in advance.Very enthusiatic staff took us to see the painting in a giant temperature controlled warehouse (pod). Over 1500 paintings fixed to hundreds of wire frames mounted on rollers in this single pod - many others. Each frame could be pulled out to view the 5 or 6 paintings fixed to each side. Once we had seen the painting we wanted - the staff showed us a Renoir. Siseley, a couple of Lowrys all stored nearby in the same pod. They do organised tours - really worth a visit - book ahead
