People's Palace and Winter Gardens

People's Palace and Winter Gardens
Set within the city’s oldest park, historic Glasgow Green, the fascinating People’s Palace documents the social history of Glasgow, recounting tales of city life from 1750 through to the 20th century. Adjoining the red sandstone Victorian museum building is the Winter Gardens, a Victorian-era greenhouse packed with tropical plants.

The Basics
The People’s Palace is one of the best places to get a real sense of life in Scotland’s biggest city and to find out what makes its people tick. Objects, photographs, films, and prints document everything from tenement life to wartime living. The People’s Palace and Glasgow Green are often included on private tours of the city. Glasgow hop-on hop-off tour buses typically stop near the museum. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The People’s Palace and Winter Gardens are a must for history buffs and plant lovers. 
  • A café is located within the greenhouse and free Wi-Fi is available. 
  • The People’s Palace and Winter Gardens are accessible to wheelchair users, with ramps providing access to the entrance and elevators providing access between the floors. 

How to Get There
The People’s Palace and Winter Gardens are set within Glasgow Green, a large riverside public park. Take the subway to Enoch station and walk along Argyle Street. Alternatively, make the 15-minute walk from Argyle Street, Bellgrove, or High Street train station. 

When to Get There
The museum and greenhouse are popular among families, and therefore are busiest on weekends and during school vacations, with summer proving to be a particularly busy time. Go early to get in ahead of the crowds. 

What to See at the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens
Among the highlights of the history museum exhibits are Scottish comedian Billy Connolly’s banana boots and a mural by Scottish artist Ken Currie depicting the life of Glasgow’s working classes. Also worth checking out is the grand Doulton Fountain, an elaborate terra-cotta fountain honoring the British Empire located outside the entrance, and the glasshouse, where exotic palms, cacti, and orchids thrive in the hot environment.
