Riverside Museum

Monday, September 13th, 2010

The second most visited Museum of Transport in the UK was Glasgow’s Museum of Transport in the City’s West End.  It closed in April 2010 and will move to its new home, the Riverside Museum, on the banks of the Clyde in Spring 2011.

The Riverside Museum was designed by Zaha Hadid CBE, a leading, award-winning architect whose spectacular designs can be seen in cultural buildings all over the world.  Born in Iraq, she now lives and works in London and was the first female to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize.

Displays in the new Museum include trams, steam trains, cycles, cars, ships and motorbikes which will all be housed in unique and innovative exhibitions.
