Subway: Maps & Stations: Riverside Museum

Riverside Museum Exterior

The Riverside Museum is Glasgow’s newly designed Museum of Transport and Travel. The building was designed by the internationally-renowned architect, Zaha Hadid, and houses various artifacts which reflect Glasgow’s rich industrial heritage.

Situated at the heart of the River Clyde, with the renovated Tall Ship alongside, the museum has over 3000 objects on display. SPT is an official patron of the museum which features two separate Subway exhibits, complete with original carriages that were painstakingly restored to their former glory inside and out.
