Visited here for a private function and would go back. Just a great display of travel history in the region - cars, trams, buses, motorcycles, horse-drawn etc.

This museum was recommended by the I-center in Glasgow. It was very easy to get to as it is on the hop-on-hop-off route. It was extremely interesting and fun to go through.

Went there with friends while visiting them in Glasgow. Very impressive building. My husband loves bikes so he was really happy to see all the old, historical motorbikes.

A fabulous free museum of different modes of transportation through the ages. Bikes, trains and automobiles. Don’t miss the tall ship outside.

We were traveling with a 7 month old and two 70+ year olds and this was a nice way to spend the afternoon and FREE! Great exhibits and lots of interesting facts. We really enjoyed our trip to the museum and were very impressed.

Went here on a wet day in Glasgow. It was excellent and ideally situated next to the Tall Ship. Both were free to visit. Cafes were good in both. Really worth a couple of hours.

We thought it was a bit odd just because we never did figure out how they placed the exhibits...by chronological date (no), by items original location (no)...but it didn't really matter! You go in and it's just interesting! We loved the locomotives (!!), their stories...More
