The Riverside Museum, Scotland’s Museum of Transport and Travel is the new home for Glasgow’s world-class Transport and Technology Collection.

The Zaha Hadid-designed building is a masterpiece of architecture, a perfect complement to the stunning and exciting displays within. This exciting new attraction also offers several possibilities to clients seeking a topical and fascinating venue in which to hold corporate events such as private dinners, drinks receptions or meetings. The Museum’s magnificent collection can also be enjoyed exclusively by guests attending a private evening event.

Main Street is a magnificently atmospheric recreation of a typical Glasgow street spanning the years between 1895 and 1930.

The setting is enhanced by authentic period shopfronts and accessible interiors. A subway station and typical vehicles of the period are also situated within the Main Street area. The Main Street is a superb location with a real difference for a standing reception for up to 120 guests.

    Trains, Ships, Cars and a slice of historical life in a well presented and engaging museum with free entry and fully accessible for wheelchair users. What's not to like. Kids from ages 3 to 10 loved it and even the wife was interested!

    The transport museum is a must go and see, if you live in Glasgow or just visiting for the first time. It's also free to go inside or you can give a donation to go in . It has old vintage cars ,trams and replicas off warships and passenger ships and much more . There are cafes inside if you want a bit to eat . Enjoy your visit 😊

    If you like history, then this would be a good place for you. The riverside museum presents transport history. You see trains, bikes, cars, ships. I quite liked it. There's also a nice Cafe and decent toilet facilities. Nice ambience. You can also go round the building to the waterside which was quite nice and I presume will be nicer during the summer. Entry is free but you need to pay for parking. I however noticed that parking was more expensive than presented on their website.
