Fast Facts – Building and Heritage Preservation

We have been sharing fast facts about the reimagined Museum. This week’s theme is the Museum building and heritage preservation.

Once Paisley Museum reopens in 2024, there will be:

  • New galleries in the former library building and new connections into the museum
  • New and refurbished historic galleries, celebrating John Honeyman’s original architectural design
  • New roofs and services for maximum environmental sustainability
  • Restored historic fabric and finishes
