What a wee gem this museum and library is! A wonderful showcase of the importance of women and their roles in history. The guided tours were incredible. Informative, fun and filled with learning. Highly recommend a guided historic walking tour.

There is always an excellent atmosphere at the Women's Library, and they're always active and involving women of all ages across Glasgow. They hold some great events and provide a wonderful opportunity for women to participate and learn.
