The People's Palace is Glasgow's social history museum and a chance to see the story of the people and city of Glasgow from 1750 to the present. You can see paintings, prints and photographs displayed alongside a wealth of historic artefacts, film and computer interactives. 

There are exhibits depicting: dancing and holidaying; home life during the Second World War; and a trip to the steamie to get the clothes washed. Visit the 'single end' and discover how a family lived in this typical one-room Glasgow tenement family home of the 1930s. Discover the political history of the city through some of the superb and unique banners on display.

Attached to the People's Palace is the elegant Victorian glasshouse - the Winter Gardens - where you can relax amongst the tropical plants and enjoy the café. There is a programme of temporary exhibitions and events throughout the year.

This is a small museum with family appeal, however the area around Glasgow Green is a bit run down and not very attractive.
