Had the pleasure of visiting this Museum today, excellent introduction to the history off the museum.
The little gem in Dumbarton, lots of history on ship building from early 1800's through to the 1960's, the birth of the Hover Craft started here also.
Plenty off facts and pictures on Denny & Brothers history, well worth a visit.

Free parking, personal welcome and step back in time. A fascinating preservation of Scotlands shipbuilding heritage. Well worth a visit.

Good cafe too.
Easy parking. Inexpensive admission.
