People's Palace

The People’s Palace tells the story of Glasgow and its people, while the adjacent Winter Gardens is filled with exotic palms and plants. Set on historic Glasgow Green, the People’s Palace tells the story of Glasgow and its people from 1750 to the present day.

The city’s social history can be explored through a wealth of historic artifacts, paintings, prints and photographs, film and interactive computer displays. The exhibits give a wonderful insight into how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in years gone by.

In the Winter Gardens you can wander among the exotic palms and plants or enjoy a coffee or lunch at the café. Outside the Winter Gardens, the restored Doulton Fountain stands pride of place on Glasgow Green, the oldest public space in Glasgow.
