Newest Review: ... of the ship that you can ring loudly! All the little rooms such as the galley kitchen, the hospital room etc are done to give an impression of what they were like back in their day. The stairs up onto the top decks, and to the lower ones are very narrow and steep, so not the best for small kids. There is a cafe and a soft play area on one of the lower decks, and there are some interactive ... more

The Transport Museum has recently relocated to the Riverside Museum on the banks of the River Clyde. There is a bus available every 20 minutes from Glasgow City Centre, and it takes about 10 minutes at the most to reach the museum, stopping at the S.E.C.C on the way, and then the bus travels on to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The bus stop is located next to a generous car park, and the main entrance is visible straight away. However, we decided to head towards the riverside first, and take a look at The Tall Ship, docked next to the museum. It costs £5 per adult to board the ship, and the first child is free, with each subsequent child paying £3. They give ... Read the complete review

The Glasgow Museum of Transport is situated in the North West of the city in a beautiful setting. The vehicles are kept in the Kelvin Hall, a splendid piece of architecture, which is directly across from the stunning Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, itself located in one of the most beautiful city parks in Europe, Kelvingrove Park. The Corporation of Glasgow has always done its best to get its folk to and from their work, rest and play. Whether this has been by tram, bus or underground train, Glasgow's transport system has been there, working hard for its people, and deserves to be remembered. This memory is especially now important, now that its buses have ... Read the complete review

This was my favourite place to visit when I was a kid in Glasgow! It may sound a bit boring to some people but it really is not! Not only are all the old cars, buses and trams really interesting to look at there are plenty of them you can go inside, and kids love to imagine they are driving the old trains. The old street is a firm favourite with everyone, and especially interesting for children to see how the streets might have looked when their grandparents were young! There's even an old cinema you can go in and watch old films about Glasgow. It's easy to get to, just hop on a number 9 or a 62 bus and get off outside Kelvingrove ... Read the complete review

This is a museum situated in Glasgow's West end next to the River Kelvin. It is easy to get to with the subway station 5-10 mins walk away. It is also accessible by bus and if your staying in Glasgow City centre it is a 20/30 minutes walk. It is provides a look into the development of transport throughout the 20th century. There is a selection of trams on show, many over a 100 yrs old, which once trundled Glasgow's streets. An old fashioned street is also a centre piece of the museum. There is also an entire section dedicated to Glasgow's industrial past when it was world leader in ship building on the Clyde. Entrance is free, although a charitable ... Read the complete review

I have been to the Museum of Transport in Glasgow several times, with both family and friends, and I never seem to tire of it. It is situated in the west end of Glasgow at 1 Bunhouse Road. It is directly opposite the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. It is easily reached by car, underground or bus. The underground is about 5 minutes walk and the buses from the city centre stop almost outside the door. The transport museum was opened in 1964 and has around half a million visitors per year. Entry is free and there is a car park which was free last time I was there (there was talk of the car park being made pay and display). The museum is on two ... Read the complete review
