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.

This was our first visit to this Museum. We were very impressed with the layout and being of a certain age - hit the nostalgia button ! Loved the Underground when you heard the commentary by the conductor. The Terrace Restaurant was very nice too and we enjoyed a nice lunch there. Staff were very attentive and friendly. We hope to return for a further visit.

I visited the Riverside Museum of Transport last December to see a replica of the Batmobile as seen in the 1960's TV series. This was my first time here and I really enjoyed my visit. There are lots of displays and plenty to see, you could spend a full day here. I will definitely be back.

This attraction is a delight to young and old.
With 1000’s of objects on display and a number of interactive items.
Everything is here from early trams to modern Bicycles, steam trains to motor cars plus many old household articles.
With a restored tall ship on the quayside to add to the interest.
We spent five glorious hours in this Aladdin’s cave of delight
