Please Note: As we are dependent on student volunteers to deliver these tours, there are unfortunately times when study or work commitments hinder the guides' attendance.  Naturally every attempt is made to provide cover and ensure that the tour goes ahead but it is not always possible.  If you wish to check whether there is a guide allocated to your planned visit time, you can do so within 5 days of the planned visit date by ringing the museum (0141 330 4221) or the gallery (0141 330 5434).
