St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art Tours

Named after Glasgow’s patron saint, St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art focuses on six major world religions—Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Sikhism—and the sacred art they’ve spawned. The museum is set in a reproduction of a medieval building on the site of Bishop’s Castle and features a own Zen garden.

The Basics
St. Mungo Museum holds an eclectic collection of religious objects, artwork, and artifacts, from Celtic crosses and Buddha statuettes to Christian icons and Islamic prayer rugs. The exhibits, which focus on different faiths and religious communities in Glasgow and Scotland as a whole, are designed to be self-guided. Some visitors go to the museum as part of private guided tours around Glasgow, stopping at other nearby attractions such as George Square, Glasgow Cathedral, and the People’s Palace. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • This award-winning museum is a must-visit for history buffs, art lovers, and theology enthusiasts. 
  • Free Wi-Fi is available at the museum.
  • Bring a packed lunch to enjoy in the outdoor picnic area or order some food at the museum café.
  • The museum is wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
The St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art is located on Castle Street in Glasgow’s Cathedral Precinct, about 5–10 minutes from High Street train station. First Bus routes 19, 19A, 38, 57, and 57A all stop near the museum, as do hop-on hop-off tour buses.

When to Get There
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, year-round. Summer weekends are busiest, with most sightseers arriving between noon and 3pm. Get there for opening or an hour or two before closing to beat the crowds. 

What to See Nearby
St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art is just a stone’s throw from some of Glasgow’s other must-see historic sights. The Gothic-style Glasgow Cathedral, with its magnificent stained glass and tomb of St. Mungo, is just steps away, while the medieval Provand’s Lordship, Glasgow’s oldest house, is across the road.
