How Glasgow Flourished, 1714-1837

Discover how Glasgow grew into a city of global importance throughout the 1700s right up until the start of Queen Victoria's reign. Quite simply it was the people that made the city flourish. See how a few fabulously wealthy businessmen, the conscientious city's workers and the industries and great inventions made all of this happen. Learn how to make millions, see what life was like for slaves and workers and find out what still remains from that period in Glasgow today.

This will be the newest temporary exhibition to be shown in the RBS gallery space on the Lower Ground Floor.
