The Burrell Collection Art Gallery and Museum

William Burrell was quite the connoisseur. Born in 1861, the successful industrialist and rabid art collector bequeathed the pieces that he gathered over decades to the city of Glasgow in 1944. A purpose-built gallery finally opened in the early 1980s in the Pollok Country Park in Glasgow's Southside. The collection definitely merits a pilgrimage. See Han dynasty earthenware, Degas's Jockeys in the Rain and a reconstructed arch from Yorkshire's 14th-century Hornby Castle among the 9,000-plus objects.
