St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, Glasgow

The first museum in the world to be dedicated to the study of religious art and life, the St. Mungo Museum is located on Castle Street, next to Glasgow Cathedral, and was opened in 1993. Containing works of art depicting the world's six major religions, it is also home to Salvador Dali's work, Christ of St. John of the Cross.

The building, in the vernacular style, was the work of noted architect Ian Begg.
