My favourite Glasgow museum, I love it. Can't wait till it's fully opened again!

The museum remains open but the 'Winter Garden' is currently closed due to structural problems. Glass has fallen & they are worried that more could. I understand they plan to undertake a full condition survey of the structure and glazing shortly pursuant to obtaining funding and appointing a contractor to complete full structural refurbishment.

It's a great museum, I really enjoyed it. There is a café in the greenhouse with rare plants. I think it's a good place for photo shoots.

Duino Castle

Duino Castle was built by the Wallsee family in 1389 on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Trieste. It replaced an older castle from the 11th century. Over time, the Wallsee family disappeared and the castle, after having been used as a prison, became the residence of the Luogar and Hofer.

At the end of the 19th century it became the property of Prince Alexander von Thurn und Taxis from the Czech branch of the House of Thurn and Taxis. It remains with the family to this day with his great-grandson Prince Carlo Alessandro della Torre e Tasso, Duke of Castel Duino the current owner. The castle has been opened to the public as a museum and park.
