Glasgow Museum of Transport

In the summer holidays it can be hard to occupy the kids, they want to go out and do things all of the time however for most of us this is not an affordable option. If you live in the Glasgow city centre you are most probably already paying a great deal in rent or on a mortgage and being surrounded by shops and activities it can be hard to save any money at all. You may also just be looking for something to do and not really sure where to start, either way a free attraction is rare but can still be a lot of fun. It is nice to learn whilst still having fun and the Glasgow museum of transport is a great way to do this. It is not very often that we have the chance to explore different aspects of a city and we try something completely new therefore you should take advantage of the free admission and investigate the world of transport.

The Glasgow museum of transport is great for people who live in the city or are travelling into it as you can park for free. It is a day out with very few costs. This can make it easier for people that have a family to unload and want to do something that only consists of petrol costs. The Glasgow museum opens your eyes and walks you through the history of transport, including that on rail, road and sea over centuries. The museum allows you to take an in depth look at steam locomotives, horse drawn carriages, buses and cars. It is a very unique experience as they have managed to recreate their very own underground station, giving you the idea of what it would have been like in years such as 1938.

The Glasgow museum of transport also houses a great deal of history on bicycles and motorcycles which is very interesting to most people. You can find this on the upper level and will lead you on to the ‘Clyde Room’ which encompasses the original shipyard of the Clyde.

The Glasgow museum of transport has a great deal of attractions for you to see and do, you will have a lot of fun. It really is a great day out. For people that want to break the day up and stop for some refreshments then feel free to pop into the café for a nice coffee and snack. You can also get a memento of your day at the gift shop which is full of fun things to purchase. For any disabled visitors then do not worry as they have appropriate access to the building and toilets. The Glasgow museum of transport is open between 10am and 5pm Monday, Thursday and Saturday, and between 11am and 5pm on a Fri and Sunday. You will enjoy the many features of the museum and spend as long as you wish mulling your way around. It is the perfect day out for people of all ages.
