Walking Group - Week 11

We were all a little excited about the walk last week. As walks go there wasn't really a lot of walking involved in getting there as we travelled most of the way by bus to and from the location, but there was a fair amount of walking when we got there as the Glasgow Museums Resource Centre is vast.

With around 1.4 million objects in the storage pods, we were obviously only going to get a small taste of what is stored there. We started off in the Art and Paintings 'pod' and then went on to see some of the items in Arms and Armoury, Natural History, Transport and Technology and World Cultures.

The tour only lasted for an hour so we moved quite quickly through each section and the tour guides managed to show us a good selection of things, share some interesting facts and answer our questions.

We opted for the 'highlights tour' but you can also chose to have a specialist tour which focuses on a particular area of interest. The tours are free but must be booked in advance. Visit their website for more information.
