The ambitious re-development of Paisley Museum received a boost yesterday when it was announced that the project is to receive £200,000 in capital funding from The Wolfson Foundation. The transformation of the Museum is set to turn it into a world-class cultural destination, expected to attract 125,000 visits each year after it reopens in 2022.

The £42m redevelopment of the Museum is the signature project in Paisley’s radical regeneration which also includes refurbishments of the town’s A-listed town hall and a new learning and cultural hub housing library services, on the town’s high street. The redesign of the Museum campus by an international team including architects AL_A and exhibition designers Opera Amsterdam, will allow the number of objects on display to be doubled.

In December 2020, an additional £200,000 was pledged by The Hugh Fraser Foundation.
