The Burrell Collection Top 30 HighlightsThe Top 30 must-see paintings and objects
Sir William Burrell and his wife Lady Constance gifted their collection of 9,000 objects to the city of Glasgow in 1944.
This remarkable collection will take you on a tour of 6,000 years of history, featuring people and places around the world.
Through innovative and exciting displays and interpretation, the revitalised Burrell will help connect you with the people who made many of the exquisite works and some of the people who have owned them down the generations.
The Collection holds treasures from all over the world. Highlights include one of the most significant collections of Chinese art in the UK and objects from ancient civilisations, including Roman sculpture and Egyptian pottery more than 2,000 years old. There are medieval treasures including stained glass, arms and armour and over 200 tapestries which rank amongst the finest tapestries anywhere in the world, as well as paintings by renowned 19th century French artists like Manet, Cézanne and Degas.
