Glasgow’s finest museum collection is an award-winning tribute to fine art.

Sir William Burrell remains one of Glasgow’s most famous sons – and with good reason. The shipping magnate collected a treasure trove of art throughout his life – including important works by Rembrandt, Rodin, Degas and Cézanne and examples of late medieval, Chinese and Islamic art – before bequeathing the entire collection to the city. A rather nice gift wouldn't you say? It’s one of the greatest collections ever created by one person and should not be missed.
