Glasgow in January

Hello 3 of us are planning a trip to Scotland for the Hogmanay festival and we were planning on visiting Glasgow while we're there. Is there anything to do in Glasgow during this time of the year? We are aware of the cold and short daylight times, but we want to know if it's worth it to go and see Glasgow and if so what to do?
Thank you for any advice given

Well the Riverside Museum of Transport first comes to mind, then the Glasgow Cathedral. The Tenement Museum was fascinating. And then, of course, there is the music and culture. You'll be too early for the Celtic Connections Festival at the end of January, but I'm sure that you can find plenty to listen to. Check out this article.

Kelvingrove is my favorite museum in Glasgow. It is huge - and free. I also loved the Riverside Museum.

The council run museums will be open, the shops will be open. It will be cold and may see heavy snow or strong wind. Always be prepared for the weather.

If you are coming for Hogmanay, look out for panto. If you have never seen a British panto before and are in the UK that time of year, book.
