The Burrell Collection wins Museum Of The Year 2023


The Burrell Collection is the winner of Art Fund’s Museum Of The Year award, taking home a £120,000 prize.

The winner was announced at a ceremony at the British Museum, and presented by Grayson Perry, and on BBC One’s The One Show by actors Emily Blunt and Matt Damon.

The Burrell Collection in Glasgow’s Pollok Country Park houses the 9,000-object collection of Sir William and Constance Burrell. Managed by the charity Glasgow Life, it was reopened last year following £68 million, six-year refurbishment with its inaugural exhibition, The Burrells’ Legacy: A Great Gift to Glasgow’. In October 2022 it was visited, and officially opened, by King Charles.

The project began in August 2018 and the BECK team subsequently spent three and a half years refurbishing 36 galleries & increasing the size of the museum by 35%. The project included display plinths, bespoke AV housings, barriers, graphic support structures and specialist substrates, integrated display component lighting and control, plus electrical and data cabling throughout.

JoH Design are proud to have been appointed Foodservice Design Consultants for the refurbishment of The Burrell Collection. The new enhanced catering spaces include a large Visitor Restaurant, Coffee Shop, Picnic points, Meeting Rooms, plus Conference facilities and pantries throughout the building all supported by an energy efficient all-electric central Main Kitchen and Stores.
