The history of transport on land and sea with vehicles from horse drawn carriages to motor cycles,...
Opened in 2011 and located on the banks of the River Clyde, the world-class Riverside Museum is a marvel of design and engineering. Moored outside is the 19th-century sailing ship Glenlee, creating an iconic destination that explores our histories and embraces our future.
Inside the Zaha Hadid-designed museum, visitors will be struck by the stunning displays, packed with fascinating exhibits, high-tech and hands-on interactives, and inspiring and moving stories. They’ll be able to walk down our re-created 1900s street, drive a locomotive and tackle a tenement fire. They’ll be able to meet artists and entrepreneurs, dancers and drivers, peace protesters and shipwreck survivors. With more than 3,000 objects on display, from skateboards to locomotives, paintings to prams, velocipedes to voiturettes, there is something for visitors of all ages.
Entry to Riverside Museum is free.
Monday to Thursday and Saturday 10am–5pm, Friday and Sunday 11am–5pm
