When visiting on a trip with friends, we ended up in the Riverside Museum of Transport which was very welcoming with all kinds of classic cars & trains. With the museum being fairly new, the exhibits were pristine and information relating to the cars/trains summarised quite clearly. If your interested in cars/trains/bikes or not, this museum is worth a visit.

This is a very good museum for all ages. The old underground train is great and the range of exhibits is excellent. The location next to the Clyde and the Tall Ship is good. My only gripe is that some exhibits are attached high up on the wall and cannot be seen properly. The building is something to see and is best seen from the Govan side which can be reached by a very short ferry ride across the Clyde. No admission fee. A must see in Glasgow. Lots of parking. has a café.

This is a great day out. There is a strong theme of social history running through this museum so it would be of interest to everyone, not just those who love vehicles. There are quite a few hands-on exhibits for kids too. Plus it's free!

What an interesting museum especially the many different types of transport displayed in an interesting way. The small rooms had many unusual items and interesting facts. There were school trips at the time of our visit so it's a must for all ages.

One of best free experiences in Glasgow. Vast array of interesting vehicles, cycles and model ships of all sorts displayed in the most wonderful building of the last decade built in Scotland. Every vista from inside and outside building stunning. Hands on displays interesting for young and old alike. Been now on several occasions and see something new each time. Cafe excellent and note others comments re price. Given that the rest of the experience is absolutely free forgive them for charging a little more for fresh and interesting food! The view from the cafe is worth every penny alone!
