People's Palace and Winter Gardens
Glasgow’s oldest city park, the People's Palace and Winter Gardens, was built in 1898 as a cultural center.
Now a museum telling the story of Glasgow’s social history over the centuries, it’s a fascinating place to while away a few hours.
Paintings and photographs trace the city’s story, and reconstructions of tenement life bring the tale to life.
The Winter Gardens surrounding the museum feature a Victorian conservatory filled with tropical plants. The Doulton fountain in front of the museum is the largest terracotta fountain in the world.
