House for an Art Lover has established a Heritage Centre within the former stables and dovecote building which have been transformed into an educational facility to showcase the history of Bellahouston and its surrounding area.
The Heritage Centre explores the history of early Govan through to the expansion of industry and shipbuilding for which Govan and the Clyde is so richly famous, whilst a documentary exhibition presents the astonishing range of architecture, public art and sculpture located within the local area.
The highly influential British Empire Exhibition of 1938 which was staged in Bellahouston Park just before the outbreak of WW2, is showcased in a dedicated room which features a recently commissioned, animated ‘fly-through’ of a virtual model created by Glasgow School of Art’s Digital Design Studio.
A research and archive room containing a range of original / facsimile artefacts and publications relating to our displays and digital archives on apple macs is now available to the public. Access to this facility is free, but needs to be booked in advance, please contact 0141 353 4770 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your individual, class or group bookings.
