If you are looking for a place to take the kids on a cold, rainy day, then People's Palace and the Winter Gardens is a great place to go for warmth and culture. The People's Palace is a small museum run by Glasgow City Council to show the History of Glasgow and it has many interesting demonstrations, including an example of how a 'single end' flat looked, which was a one-roomed flat in a tenement. The Winter Gardens is a large conservatory which has plants from the Tropics and other warm climates, so it is lovely and warm, but not too hot to be uncomfortable. The Winter Gardens has a café and spacious toilet facilities. There is direct access inside to the People's Palace from the Winter Gardens which is great if it's raining. The People's Palace has Billy Connelly's Banana Boots and a short DVD of some comedy sketches from Glaswegian comedians. Outside opposite the front door of People's Palace, there is a large Victorian fountain which is unique. Hope you enjoy it all!
