The oldest gothic building in Prague would be worth a visit alone, but even better here you can get a look at bohemian medieval art, with some major pieces on show.

The Burrell Collection

posted by JohnG on 31 March 2009 at 18:44

More than 9,000 pieces of art work reside in this collection of eclectic art that was collected by Sir William Burrell and his wife Constance. The collection was given to the city of Glasgow in 1944 and specified that it be displayed outside of the city limits, so it could be protected from the elements. However, they were unable to find a suitable place by the time of Burrell's death, but a 300-acre estate was discovered in the city that was donated by Mrs. Anne Macdonald. This museum is interesting because of the extensive array of medieval art, tapestries, paintings, fabric, furniture, stained glass and alabaster that it contains. The building is also light, airy and pleasant and it resides in a nice country setting, perfect for picnicking and outdoor activities.
