Heritage Centre

DSCF6085

House for an Art Lover has launched a new Heritage Centre within former stables which have been transformed into an educational facility to showcase the history of Bellahouston and surrounding areas.

The Heritage Centre begins with the history of early Govan moving through to the expansion of industry and shipbuilding for which Govan and the Clyde is so richly famous.

A documentary exhibition  displays the range of architecture, public monuments and sculpture of the area, as well as the development of the river as a port and commercial artery to the city of Glasgow.

One room is dedicated to the innovative British Empire Exhibition of 1938 that includes a newly commissioned animated fly-through by Glasgow School of Art's Digital Design Studio.

Suggested Entry Fee - £1 donation per adult
