Founded in 1965 in the realisation that Glasgow is one of the finest remaining Victorian cities in the world, the society has always had strong architectural leanings, but it rapidly developed wider interests to meet the challenges of large scale transportation and industrial planning.
The aims of the Society are;
To promote, encourage and stimulate public interest in, and care for, the beauty, history and character of the city of Glasgow and its surroundings.
To encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in the Glasgow region in co-operation with other interested organisations where appropriate.
To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest.
To pursue these ends by means of meetings, exhibitions, lectures, publications, conferences, publicity and the promotion of schemes of a charitable nature.
Mon-Fri 10am-5pm, Sat-Sun 10am-4pm

Opportunities for children to engage with the display of maps charting the differing views of Glasgow, old, new and imagined.
