Glasgow's well-loved Museum of Transport
 has relocated to this spectacular waterfront landmark that was designed by internationally-renowned architect, Zaha Hadid.  The Riverside Museum is her first major public building in the UK.

The dynamic new Riverside Museum displays Glasgow's rich industrial heritage, which stems from the River Clyde.  The Tall Ship is berthed alongside the Museum, creating a fantastic experience in this stunning setting. 
Visitors can relax and enjoy the riverside views in the Museum's Riverside Café and take home all manner of transport-related gifts from the Museum's shop.
