Called in on a walk along the Clyde, mainly to warm up but ended up staying for 2 hours. There is loads to see. Loved the Trams, Subway trains, and VW van.

Took my niece and nephew to the museum for the morning and spent so much more time there than expected. 6 year old boy who loves trains and cars this was ideal. Had a lovely lunch to finish our visit.

What a disappointment first time in the new transport museum it is far to small 90% of the cars are up on platforms and totally out of view with out a scaffold. I live in Glasgow and when the museum was in the Tramway them the Kelvin hall it was much better laid out
