The Peoples Palace is Glasgow's social history museum and housed in a fine looking building with Winter Gardens attached! It tells the story of Glasgow's people from the 1750s to the end of the 20th century. The museum explores Glasgow's rich social history and the life of Glaswegians through many types of exhibits and displays e.g. paintings, prints, photographs, film and computer interactives and historic artefacts.
