Wanted to take a look at this piece of architecture after visiting Kelvingrove Museum and went inside to use the facilities! So pleased that we did - ended up spending a hour or so in this fantastic building with an interesting collection of transport. How is it though that my bike (a Chopper) and my first car (Mini metro) are now museum pieces!!!!

Lovely new museum on the banks of the river Clyde. Good range of transport examples on display, including the 2nd oldest Rolls Royce. You also get access to the tall ship in the dockyard. Free entry, although you can leave a donation. Parking costs £1 for up to 4 hours.

Likes: A great variety of vehicles witjh some connection to Glasgow. The nice floating sailship moored outside with public access. Free access for everyone.
Dislikes: A certain lack of structure, I would have liked to see a timeline which would show what is contemporary with other things..

We enjoyed our first visit so much we came back a second day. Lunch in the cafeteria was good value and tasty and the service was quick and efficient. The exhibition was fascinating and well presented. It was lovely to see the Glasgow trams - I may have travelled to school on one of them! On the first visit we had a ride on a Macbrayne's bus which took us past the University, where I spent many happy student days. This museum certainly deserves its "Museum of the year" status.
