This custom-built museum houses close to 9,000 treasures left to the City of Glasgow by wealthy industrialist Sir William Burrell in 1958 (though the building itself didn't open until 1983). Burrell’s tastes were eclectic: French paintings from the 1800s, Chinese ceramics, stained-glass church windows, medieval stone doorways, and tapestries. One major highlight is an original, and very rare, casting of Rodin's The Thinker, though many come here just to see major works by Degas, Cézanne, and Whistler.
