In the heart of Pollok Country Park, this award-winning building houses a unique collection in a beautiful woodland setting.

Our displays range from work by major artists including Rodin, Degas and Cézanne, to important examples of late medieval art, Chinese and Islamic art, Ancient Civilizations and more.

The collection is named after its donor, the shipping magnate Sir William Burrell. It's one of the greatest collections ever created by one person, comprising over 8000 objects.

The Burrell regularly hosts temporary exhibitions, and runs an extensive programme of events and activities for both adults and families with children.

The Burrell is open daily except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and 1 and 2 January. On Hogmanay, 31 December, the museum closes to the public at 12.30pm. We are open at all other times of the year, and are open on public holidays except those mentioned above.
