  • We had no idea that this would be so marvellous. We had to make a second visit to take it all in. It was so well organized and a delight to meander through it all. Such memories came back

  • What a fantastic museum! So well laid out with loads of interesting information about transport, the history of transport, and the history of Glasgow through the lens of transportation. I love it. Completely free, which means you can go whenever you like and spend as long as you like so its great for when we have families with young kids visiting. Some fantastic exhibits and constantly changing and being updated. The facilities are clean, there is a good cafe and shop and the building itself is very impressive. Great location too.
  • This museum is absolutely first class for lots of reasons. A great experience for all ages. Lots to see and lots to enjoy. I took a small group of children with profound and complex needs. They had a fabulous time. This couldn't have been possible without all of the amazing staff at the museum. We were welcomed, accommodated with a room for lunch and asked frequently throughout our visit if we had everything we needed. The facilities are fabulous and made changing wee people's nappies very easy as there is a plinth and a hoist. I can do nothing more than give the museum and their wonderful staff a first class review.
