Fans of Paisley Museum are about to learn if its £45 million project is on track.

Project Director, Kirsty Devine is updating Paisley & District u3a on Thursday 4th May.

She will outline the latest developments with the town’s new, world-class museum space

Ms Devine shares how people in and around Paisley have shaped the future use of this building. u3a members can find out more and ask questions at their monthly meeting.

Chair of Paisley’s self-help learning organisation, Kathy O’Donnell remarked: “Some people may have seen a model of the new museum on display in OneRen’s Lagoon Leisure Centre. It looks impressive.

“So, too, is the fact that ‘Paisley Museum Re-Imagined’ is Scotland’s largest cultural heritage project. Our members will be interested in what suggestions have been put forward for its use. We might offer a few ideas.”

u3a monthly meetings are held in the Salvation Army Hall, Mill Street, Paisley PA1 1ND. Doors open at 1.30pm for refreshments and the meeting starts at 2pm.

Kirsty Devine said: “It’s our ambition is to create a world-class museum space. We can’t do that alone though and we have been working with a wide range of communities – locally and globally – over the past six years to help reimagine and redefine the museum and our collections. I’m delighted to come and talk to u3a about this work in preparation for reopening in 2024.”

  1. Don’t know who the faceless councillors are in Paisley but what a farce, the town is a downright disgrace, no decent stores full of druggies and drunks and litter everywhere decent people scared to even wait at a bustop after seven at night for the poor bus service that has been downsized absolute joke and all they want to do is spend all that money on a museum and town hall. Poverty everywhere in Paisley as more than half don’t want to work, the stench of cannabis is everywhere thats what the town so called councillors should be sorting get a grip, get the police patrolling on foot with plenty of backup thats what you should be doing with the hard working taxpayers who do work.
