Heritage Centre

Established by House for an Art Lover within the former stables and dovecote building, our Heritage Centre is an educational facility showcasing the rich and diverse history of Bellahouston and the surrounding area.

In our Heritage Centre  you can:

• Explore the history of Govan, from its early days right through to the expansion of industry and glory days of shipbuilding
• Enjoy a fascinating documentary exhibition presenting the diverse range of architecture, public art and sculpture in the local area.
• Learn about the British Empire Exhibition of 1938 in a dedicated showcase, featuring an animated “fly-through” designed by Glasgow School of Art’s digital design studios.
• Research and discover at our archive rooms, containing a range of original and facsimile artefacts and publications relating to all our displays and archives.*

Admission £1
