About Paisley Museum

Paisley Museum is a 4 star visitor attraction located in the heart of Paisley. It houses a wealth of treasures, from Ancient Egyptian artefacts to reminders of our industrial past and our natural heritage.

Among our treasures, pride of place goes to The Arbuthnott Missal, a rare medieval manuscript and one of only a few that survived the Reformation in Scotland to reminders of Paisleys industrial past and natural heritage, our unique textile collection and not forgetting our much loved ‘Buddy’ the lion!

The Art Galleries at Paisley Museum are used year round for exhibitions ranging from contemporary to classical art and everything in between!

And why not take a look at our Museum shop? You’ll find a range of gift ideas including Paisley Pattern original merchandise.

With a year-round programme of changing exhibitions, talks and educational activities, Paisley Museum is a fascinating place to visit.

Admission to Paisley Museum is free, however there may be charges for temporary exhibitions.
