St Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life and Art

St Mungo brought Christianity to Scotland in the 6th century and is Glasgow’s patron saint. This museum showcases not only Christianity though as it looks at religions throughout the world in an effort to help peoples of all religions to understand and respect each other’s beliefs. The building itself was built as recently as 1993 however it is styled on the medieval Bishops’ Castle that once stood on the site. Here you can see works of art, objects and displays that are related to religions throughout the world. On the ground floor there is a shop and a café leading to the stunning Japanese Zen Garden. While you are visiting take a look across from the museum and you will see Provand’s Lordship which is Glasgow’s oldest house or if you have time take a tour round Glasgow Cathedral.
