Riverside Museum

At Riverside Museum there are over 3,000 objects on display, compared with 1,300 objects at the previous Museum of Transport. These include some old favourites along with some new exhibits to the Collection. One of the new exhibits is the recently acquired South African locomotive, Glasgow Museums’ largest object.

Visitors can climb aboard some of the exhibits to get a real feel for vintage public transport by accessing four locomotive footplates, three trams, two subway cars, one train carriage and a bus.

Other Attractions at Riverside Visitors to Riverside can venture aboard The Tall Ship 'Glenlee', Glasgow's lovingly restored Clyde built ship. The Glenlee was launched in 1898 and today she operates an exciting programme of events and activities. Admission charges apply.

Kelvin Harbour is the city's new hub for river-based activities and services including a cross-river ferry, powerboat rides and a public slipway. Look out for the historic Kelvinhaugh Ferry No 8 and other vessels belonging to the Clyde Maritime Trust.
