Fascinating museum. This museum is situated on Sauchiehall Street. It presents the history of the Royal Highland Fusiliers, as well as the previous regiments from 1678 to the present. Wonderful exhibits. Huge collection of army memorabilia. Very interesting museum. Fascinating piece of local history. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful staff. Shop with unique souvenirs. The museum is housed in a historic building with many Charles Rennie Mackintosh features , the building does have a lift designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Well worth a free visit . Great place to visit.

I paid a visit on a rainy Thursday 2+ weeks ago. Even if it had been glorious sunshine I would have paid a visit. I am a volunteer at the IWM in London, so thought it interesting to take a "busman's holiday". As per a comment from another reviewer, in some parts the lighting was dimmed. I'm not a conservator, so I can't say to what extent they have to do this for preservation purposes. Whilst I am inundated with images of militaria on a daily basis, there were several items of interest where I was snapping away. I'd like to mention that the volunteer manning the museum was friendly and helpful. Whilst I am biased, these people are the ambassadors of the museum, and she did a great job. (South of the borer, there's a military museum curator with a reputation that preceeds him for behaving like Basil Fawlty which is what prompted me to raise this subject.) I've been told that Glaswegians are friendly, and she certainly was. Interesting to read that the museum will likely be moving. I would definitely recommend a visit here if you like military history.

Wanted to visit for sometime and decided to spend the afternoon in Glasgow before going to a concert,so with my neice we paid a visit here.My dad served in the HLI then the RHF so it was interesting,only problem was poor lighting in a lot of areas and some items very high up could be missed but hopefully when the museum moves in the future this will be resolved.Female working there was lovely and helpful,we purchased a few small gifts from their shop and she advised us how to find more personal info on my dad including advice to check the nearby library where I found a previously unseen photo of my dad so a great day in Glasgow for various reasons was had.

Thank you so much for your very positive review - I have passed your kind comments on to Nicki, our Museum Attendant, who will delighted that she was able to help. I quite understand your comments about the poor lighting; however, sadly, there is little that we can do as we are at the mercy of the Ministry of Defence for maintenance of current home. As the Museum is hopefully moving to the Kelvin Hall development, we have not tried to update the Museum; however, it is remarkable how well the displays which date from the late 1980s have stood the test of time. Thank you again for your kind comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed our wee "gem"!
