Free Things to do in Glasgow
Did you know that some of Glasgow’s best attractions offer free admission? January is the perfect time of year to explore the city without spending a penny.
Join the Pirates Aboard The Tall Ship
The Glenlee is one of only five Clyde-built ships still afloat in the world today. The Glenlee, or the Tall Ship, is an independent museum documenting maritime history of the area for the benefit of local people and visitors to Glasgow. You can explore the ship including the Captain’s cabin, visit the mini cinema and the under 5’s play area in the cargo hold, take part in the mouse hunt and have a go scrubbing the deck. The Tall Ship is berthed on the River Clyde just behind the Riverside Museum.
Take a Tour of The Hunterian
The Hunterian Art Gallery and Museum is Scotland’s oldest public museum. It contains over a million items, ranging from art to archaeology and palaeontology to numismatics. Tours of approximately 30 minutes take place throughout the day led by Museum Student Educators. For tour times and more information click here.
