NS5160 : Glasgow Museums Resource Centre

Glasgow Museums Resource Centre
Glasgow Museums Resource Centre
This museum in South Nitshill opened in late 2003, and provided storage for approximately two hundred thousand objects from Glasgow's museum collections. It is divided internally into several "pods", in which the temperature and humidity are carefully controlled. Only the front section of the building is visible here, with a larger portion extending behind it.

Following a major refurbishment, the centre reopened to the public in September 2009; it will now store over a million items.

Set some distance from the main road, the GMRC is not in the most prominent of locations, and remains rather less well-known than some of Glasgow's other museums, but I consider it to be well worth a visit. There are daily tours; I took part in one on the day this photo was taken.
