£15m of lottery funding for Burrell Collection refurb
The National Lottery has awarded £15m for the refurbishment of the Burrell Collection in Glasgow.
The funding marks a key milestone for the Burrell Collection which will see the museum and its collection undergo a refurbishment of the building and redisplay of almost 9,000 objects.
The Burrell Collection closed to the public in October 2016, allowing work to commence on the £66m refurbishment of the Grade A category building.
By optimising spaces and visitor circulation throughout the museum, the scheme will open up all three floors of the building whilst protecting and enhancing the 1983 Grade A listed building’s architectural integrity.
Only 20 per cent of the collection is on display. Flexible displays for the rotation of artworks and new spaces for temporary exhibitions will allow much more of the collection to be displayed. The entire collection will be accessible digitally, collection stores will open to the public for the first time, and a new dedicated space for special exhibitions will be created.
The refurbishment will also repair the fabric of the building, improving its sustainability, transforming it from a building with a large carbon footprint into an energy-efficient, modern museum.
The Burrell Renaissance has raised more than 80 per cent of the project costs to date with Glasgow City Council agreeing to fund up to 50 per cent of the overall project cost and further income secured and pledged from more than 100 different supporters.
