Built in 2011 on the site of an old shipyard, the building shines and exudes modernity and complexity, crowned by two-hundred tons zinc-titanium mirroring structure. Turned towards the water along the Clyde River, the façade evokes for some an EEG and for others breaking waves.
Inside, the museum endeavours to give a summary of land-based transportation. Skateboards stand alongside a steam locomotive, a tram or an 1898 subway car. The collection also puts on display a series of vehicles built in Scotland, from automobiles and bicycles to motorbikes and even a hearse.
After inland transportation, you'll move on to the sea section. On board the Glenlee, a wondrous 19th century cargo ship berthed along the museum, various items, photographs and documents tell the life of sailors at sea. An impressive collection for a breathtaking setting.
