Attraction Information

Open the door to Glasgow’s rich past at the Riverside Museum.

This multi-award winning museum is home to over 3,000 objects that tell the story of Glasgow’s history from its days as a maritime ‘powerhouse’ to the daily lives of those that lived there in the early-mid twentieth century. The objects on display are wide and varied – transport is covered with cars, bicycles, trams and locomotives. There are paintings to prams, skateboards to stormtroopers and everything in-between!

There are 150 interactive displays to help you to discover what life was really like. Walk the Glasgow street scene and tour the shops where you can look at fashion and merchandise. The screens, films and images will help to add another dimension to your wander down memory lane. Children will enjoy the Global Treasure Hunt, which is available to download and usable with the museum’s free Wi-Fi, or seek out Riverside’s Hidden Stories!
