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.

Set in lovely park grounds, suggest you park outside and walk in (if not a Glasgow rainy day). Always something interesting to see or find. Peaceful too. Cafe nice too.
