The Burrell is currently undergoing renovation and improvement and is closed, but a very small part of the collection is available for viewing in a gallery on the first floor of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The Burrell gift shop is also there.

Love the Burrell Collection and surrounding country park as it offers a unique display that you can't get anywhere else in Glasgow. Unfortunately closed unti 2020 for refurbishments but well worth a visit when it re-opens.
