The Burrell — £21.1million Economic Benefit for Scotland in its First Six Months


We’re celebrating the Burrell Collection welcoming more than 500,000 since their reopening in March 2022. Recent reports reveal that the renewed museum has brought a £19.9 million economic benefit to Glasglow and £21.1 million for Scotland. ⁠

We're so proud to have been part of the Burrell's transformation, alongside our work over the years at the Kelvingrove Museum and the Riverside Museum. It's a joy to read a recent visitor survey which stated that 88% of people stated that 'visiting a Glasgow Museum was either very or quite an important factor in their decision to visit the city'.

To have welcomed 500,000 people to the Burrell since reopening in March is a wonderful endorsement for the ambitious refurbishment of this cherished, world-class museum.
