The Glasgow Museum of Transport in Glasgow, Scotland was established in 1964 and initially located at a former tram depot in Pollokshields. In 1987 the museum was relocated to the city’s Kelvin Hall, then moved to its current location in the Riverside Museum building at Glasgow Harbour in 2011.
Currently the ‘tall ship’ called the Glenlee that is located behind the riverside museum offers maritime themed events and activities, with specially devised talks and tours, school visits and costumed volunteer days. Explore every nook and cranny of the Glenlee, including the refurbished Captain’s cabin, with our brand new audio guide facility, a fun way to learn the history of the ship. Visit the mini cinema and under 5’s play area in the cargo hold, take part in our mouse hunt and put your questions to our working ship’s crew. It is free to individuals and families of up to 8 people.
Children enjoyed seeing the different kinds of transport and got to climb aboard a few trams! On ‘The Tall Ship’ they got to ring the bell and scrub the decks! The temporary beach at the front of the museum for the summer was also great fun – they looked for treasures buried in the sand and made several sandcastles which were great fun to knock down!
