Owner description: Riverside Museum is Glasgow's award-winning transport museum. With over 3,000 objects on display there's everything from skateboards to locomotives, paintings to prams and cars to a Stormtrooper. Get hands on with our interactive displays. Walk through Glasgow streets and visit the shops, bar and subway. Climb aboard a train, tram or bus and get a real feel for old public transport. Discover Glasgow's rich shipbuilding history, explore the car and motorbike walls and help put out a fire with our interactive fire engine. There are over 90 large touch screens panels full of images, memories and films that tell the fascinating stories behind the objects. There really is something for all ages to enjoy at the Riverside Museum.

Such a great place to visit with kids. Many of the exhibits were transported from the old museum site but have been reimagined in such a way to give them new life.

Well worth a visit.

Excellent displays and well worth a visit and with free entry to the museum it's a day out for all the family the tall ship at the back if the museum is a bit costly though

First of all its hard to be to harsh because at end of day it's free.anyone other city it wouldn't be.
Lovely location and tall ship behind is fantastic and also free to go on.
Downside it's not anywhere near as good as previous sight simply because it's to small.having the cars and motorbikes up so high is pointless because you cannot see them..
Spotlessly clean and nice staff.the old street and underground trains are fab as is the old shops you can go in.upstairs cafe a let down.but no doubt it is highly worth a visit as very interesting

Every type and form of transport you could imagine is housed in this museum. There is so much to do and see and our three kids loved it. We stopped off in the restaurant for lunch. There’s a kids menu available which was good value and went down very well.
There is a tall ship, the Glenlee, outside that can also be explored. The tall ship and transport museum are both free
