People's Palace and Winter Gardens

The People's Palace is Glasgow's museum of social history, with exhibits and displays telling the story of the city from 1750 to the present, and a programme of talks and activities. The museum was opened in 1898 by the Earl of Rosebery and was intended to provide a cultural centre for the people of East Glasgow. It features a collection of objects, photographs, prints and film which show how Glaswegians lived, worked and played in past and present years.

Next door the Winter Gardens house a variety of exotic plants, while outdoors you can find Glasgow Green, the city's oldest park, featuring the spectacular Doulton Fountain.
