The People’s Palace in Glasgow has been reopened to the public.

Glasgow Life confirmed that the site will initially be open every Wednesday and Thursday between 10am and 5pm.

Signage has been installed throughout the museum to encourage physical distancing and increased hygiene measures are in place.

Staff have also undertaken Covid-19 awareness training and will have an increased presence to help the public navigate the new one-way layout and ensure a memorable visitor experience.

Visitors need to pre-book a free ticket online for a specific date and time, whilst entry to the museum remains free.

Councillor David McDonald, chair of Glasgow Life and depute leader of Glasgow City Council, said: “On Wednesday the museum will be alive with visitors but we are still operating in a pandemic and that has required some changes and not all displays will be open.

“We know how keen people are to return to what for many is their favourite museum in Glasgow, but we must ensure everyone feels safe and confident to come inside again.

“Visiting museums has a positive effect on our overall wellbeing and reopening another of the city’s most popular museums will provide further free access to art and culture for everyone, especially during school holidays.”
