Yesterday the small boys and I paid a trip to the new Riverside Museum in Glasgow.
I first saw the design for the museum in New York in a Zaha Hadid exhibition at the Guggenheim and it was brilliant to see the building completed years later.
The snaking silver building houses the old Transport Museum’s collection and is a huge improvement with loads of space to show off trams, trains, cars and bikes.
To give you an idea of scale…
Those are proper cars on the floating shelves.
I loved seeing Graeme Obree’s ‘home-made’ bike.
It’s a great day out with easy access by train from Partick.
My only two criticisms:
Why can’t kids choose what goes in their lunchbox? Chicken crisps aren’t every-one’s favourite.
And beware the Tall Ship. £15 for an adult and £5 for a child is pretty steep, especially compared to the free entry to the Riverside Museum.
