Founded on the location of the former A. & J. Inglis Shipyard, the most notable sight is the 19th Century Glasgow Tall Ship, the Glenlee, moored next to it on the River Clyde, which visitors can climb aboard.
The museum is run by Clyde Waterfront, which has also created a riverside trail that runs outside the museum, guiding you through the sights and history of the river and surrounding areas. Please visit their website to find out more about this and all of their other projects.
The museum has successfully combined the previous collections from the Transport museum, including the authentic recreation of a street from the early 1900s, with new exhibits on Glasgow expansive maritime history. It has also acquired new artwork to compliment the new collection, including L.S. Lowry’s Cranes and Ships, and a 1945 steam locomotive, originally built in Glasgow and gifted to the museum by South African firm Spoornet.
