St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art

From Hindu deities to the Buddha, Zen design and Christian artworks, the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art explores religions from around the world.

This somewhat controversial but award-winning museum examines the role of religion in daily life over the centuries, focusing on the world’s main religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Sikhism.

Interactive displays bring voices from around the globe to life, and also focus on the beliefs of ancient and modern-day Scots.

The museum stands on the original location of the bishop’s palace, and re-creates the heavy stone and mullioned windows of a medieval building. After browsing the displays and exhibits, enjoy a rest and cup of tea in the museum’s tranquil Zen Garden.

Practical Info

The St. Mungo Museum is a short walk or bus ride east of the city center, overlooking Glasgow Cathedral and its 19th-century graveyard.
