Expert review of St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art

This Glasgow gallery celebrates the city’s great diversity.

In a city that has become famous for its rich religious mix, St Mungo’s is a great place to go one stage further and educate yourself about the world’s major religions. Outstanding displays and figurines from Buddhism and Hinduism, including a celebrated Shiva statue, and a view of the Glasgow Cathedral and the nearby Necropolis are enough to provide divine inspiration for even the most sceptical of visitors.

Price advice: 

Free.

Expert tips: 
Don’t forget to visit the Zen garden outside.
The Provand’s Lordship, the oldest house in the city, is across the road, and is also worth a visit.
