People's Palace and Winter Gardens
Discover the Glaswegians' story in the People's Palace, through this exhibition that documents social and industrial life through the ages. Originally a cultural center for the working class, this red sandstone edifice was built in 1898. Today it contains many interactive exhibits that kids will enjoy, including listening posts where you can compare different Scottish accents. The adjacent Winter Gardens suffered fire damage in 1998, but the greenhouse is back in business with a collection of beautiful exotic plants on display. After visiting be sure to take a leisurely stroll through Glasgow Green on your way back to the Merchant City.
The People's Palace remains one of those great places to while away a Sunday afternoon. Check out how the working class of Glasgow used to live, then wander across the road to the trendy flats of Glasgow's Homes for the Future. The square at St Andrew's church is well worth a visit to see what can be done with old housing stock and a fantastic old church when you throw some public money at them. Trendy coffee bars abound, yards from where Glaswegians used to hang their felons. (Glasgow Green) The only hanging you are likely to see will be in one of the coffee shops or art galleries where many of Glasgow's aspiring young artists display their work.
