Scotland // Glasgow and the Clyde //

Riverside Museum

Just west of the Science Centre, on the other side of the river, the magnificent new Riverside Museum – Scotland’s Museum of Transport and Travel – houses artefacts from Glasgow’s old transport museum, and a lot more besides. The wave-like titanium-clad building by Zaha Hadid is an attraction in its own right, its cathedral-like interior home to a huge, dramatically displayed collection of trains, boats, trams, bike, cars and ships models. Interactive exhibits provide engaging background on the city’s social fabric, with walk-through streets incorporating real interiors from Glasgow shops and cafés.
