Exhibition rooms

Visit our exhibition rooms to learn more about life in Glasgow at the turn of the century. It’s included with your admission. Discover how ‘the other half’ lived and gain insights into the experiences of working women during the Victorian era.

Fun fact: During wartime, there was a significant rise in women joining the workforce. However, in Agnes Toward’s era, women were only allowed to enter limited professions. Teaching and nursing were among the few options, but they often required expensive training.

Don’t miss out on our ever-changing display cases, which showcase items from our archive throughout the season. There’s always something new to see!
