  • The Burrell Collection: The contents of this gallery were accumulated by industrialist Sir William Burrell (1861-1958), who spent much of his fortune on collecting art and artifacts - then ensuring they all went to the city of Glasgow. Now on display in a postmodern building in Glasgow's Pollok Country Park, it's one of Scotland's most admired museums, with a strong focus on medieval art, 19th-century French paintings, and Chinese ceramics.
  • Hunterian Art Gallery: This museum owns much of the artistic estate of James McNeill Whistler, as well as housing a re-creation of the home of Scotland's most famous architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
  • Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum: Reopened in 2006, this diverse collection of art and antiquaries is in the second-most visited gallery and museum in the U.K. outside of London.
