Scotland is a beautiful and fascinating place filled with castles, historic ruins and relics from the past. Wherever you visit you are never far from a Museum or gallery where some of the best artefacts are on display, together with a vast amount of information about the area. Whatever you are interested in there is sure to be somewhere perfect for you to explore, including the Museum of Transport in Glasgow, the Scottish Fisheries Museum in Fife or the Costume Museum in Dumfries and Galloway. With many more covering Maritime, Religious, School and Rural Life, the History of Flight and several art galleries there is more than enough to see however many times you visit. The city of Glasgow houses the famous Burrell Collection, in Pollok Country Park. This unique collection of art and fascinating objects from all over the world was donated in 1944 by Sir William Burrell as a gift to the city. Many of the museums have special displays on show throughout the year and offer hands on experiences for all ages.
