The Tall Ship Glenlee is open!

We are currently undergoing exciting maintenance projects that will safeguard the future of the Glenlee and improve the visitor experience.

This means that parts of the ship will look slightly different and some areas may not be accessible.

We are very grateful to the Heritage Lottery Memorial Fund, Museums Galleries Scotland and the Friends of Glasgow Museums for their ongoing support.

In summer (British Summer Time) we are open 10 am to 5 pm.  On Tuesdays we open at 11 am.

Last admission is 30 minutes before closing time.

This may change if there are events or functions.  Information on this will be in the What's On section, and on the day on this page.

Glenlee is free to visit and there is no requirement to book to visit, however for groups of more than eight, we strongly recommend booking.  See the Group booking page for more information.

For school groups, nurseries, after-school groups or holiday groups, please visit the learning programme page. Booking is essential for these groups.
