Collections Showcase and temporary displays are now open. Tours of the Glasgow Museums' Stores run regularly.
The City of Glasgow owns one of the finest civic museum collections in Europe with the entire collection being recognised as being of national significance under the Scottish Government’s Museum Recognition Scheme.
Kelvin Hall provides secure, stable, publicly accessible storage for approximately 400,000 objects previously stored in Glasgow Museums' Maryhill facility which had very limited public access.
The following collections are now accessible at Kelvin Hall via tours and special events:
- Social History
- Transport & Technology
- Education Collections
- World Cultures
- Ceramic tiles
- Charles Rennie Macintosh - a substantially unaltered archive of his original designs.
- Room settings - including 17 interiors designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Miss Cranston's Ingram Street tearooms.
The collections are mainly in storage and access is through a regular programme of tours, talks, collections study and learning activities.
