This museum, part of the Scottish Maritime Museum is situated in Dumbarton close to Dumbarton Central Station & is easily accessed by either bus or train.
Despite being called a "Tank" museum the name in fact refers to the massive Ship Design Testing tank where designers created physical models of the hull of the vessel to be built & tested them in the Tank. This is a fascinating look into how shipping evolved into what we see today & you can still see it in operation if you speak to the staff, there are also numerous other exhibits within this small complex and a cafe` complements the tour.
