Paisley Museum revamp

One of Paisley's flagship regeneration projects is the £49m plans to extend Paisley Museum and turn it into an international-class attraction based around Paisley's unique textile and design heritage.

The aim is to make the most of Paisley's internationally-significant museum collection and would see an extension built into the hillside beside the existing museum.

It is hoped the completed building would increase visitor numbers to 125,000 per year, and be worth around £75m for the local economy.

But we want it to be more than a tourist attraction—the hope is the museum would be the catalyst for new businesses based around textile and design to spring up round about it.
