St Mungo Museum of Religious Life & Art
The award-winning St Mungo Museum is a haven of tranquillity in a bustling city. This museum is named after Glasgow's patron saint, who brought the Christian faith to Scotland in the 6th century.
About St Mungo Museum of Religious Life & Art
The building was built in 1989 in Scottish baronial style by Ian Begg. It was designed to reflect the architecture of the Bishops’ Castle, the site of which is occupied by the museum. Its galleries are full of displays, artefacts and stunning works of art. They explore the importance of religion in peoples’ lives across the world and across time.
The venue aims to promote understanding and respect between people of different faiths and of none, and offers something for everyone.
You can find out more about some of the world’s major religions, and the story of religion in the west of Scotland. Or you can relax in the museum café, which opens out into the first Zen garden in Britain.
St Mungo Museum regularly hosts temporary exhibitions and a variety of events, from family-friendly activities to talks relating to religion in Scotland today.
This museum sits across from Provand’s Lordship, which is the oldest house in Glasgow, and alongside the medieval Glasgow Cathedral. Why not take a trip to visit all three?
