My Visit to the Riverside Museum in Glasgow


Yesterday, I visited the Riverside Museum in Glasgow, which I planned as part of my weekend mini-tour. The day before, I cleaned my house, got new bed sheets, and bought scented candles from Tesco, which I'll share with you all later on the blog.

While I wanted to enjoy every bit of this experience, I also wanted to savor the view. So, while I was on the bus (I got a day ticket to move around), I set my phone aside, letting the music play as I looked around at the city. It was a sunny day, and I cherished every minute of the journey.

When I reached my bus stop, I got off in front of a charity shop, checked it out, and then walked down to the Riverside Museum. I had to use my map to navigate to the location and received help from a lovely woman too.

Guess what was the first beauty I saw on my way? It was the River Kelvin, a tributary of the River Clyde in northern and northeastern Glasgow, Scotland. It rises on the moor southeast of the village of Banton, east of Kilsyth.

Anyway, when I arrived at the museum, there was a lot to see, I must say. I enjoyed every bit of history and experience, from the old street view to the various modes of transportation like cars, bikes, trains, and ships. It was an immersive experience that transported you back in time.

This made me wonder why much of this has changed because most of those cars seemed sturdier than the ones we have today, and the trains had robust bodywork. I even saw some unique bicycles.

I honestly love old cars, or if you prefer, vintage cars. I hope to own a Lada someday.

Just before I entered the ship exhibit, my phone died, and I couldn't take photos of it. I had my Chromebook in my bag, so I plugged it in, but it wasn't charging for long, for reasons I don't know yet, but I'll check later.

Well, when my phone managed to power up, I quickly took photos. Also, it was about time since I purchased a large frame from the charity store I needed to pick up before 5, so I had to leave without fully enjoying the ship exhibit. I plan to visit again, this time looking so good or wearing a dress because I will take photos of the ship and also have that summer beauty glowing. 

This place is free entry and you get free water tap at the entrance. At the entrance I was given a site plan to add my experience. 

Address to the Riverside museum: 100 Point House Rd, Govan, Glasgow G3 8RS. It is free entry.

    1. That sounds like a fantastic experience! The London Transport Museum is indeed renowned for its fascinating exhibits, including the opportunity to drive an underground train. It must have been quite thrilling to get behind the controls! If you have any more stories or experiences to share, I'd love to hear them.

  13. We are trying to decide if we're going to add Glasgow or Edinburgh to our trip. There's a lot about Edinburgh but not much about Glasgow, so I'm especially interested in your photos and take on the city and look forward to more. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Deciding between Glasgow and Edinburgh can be a tough choice—they both have their own unique charm and attractions. While Edinburgh is known for its historic architecture and cultural landmarks, Glasgow offers a vibrant arts scene, stunning architecture, and a rich industrial heritage.

      I'm glad you're interested in hearing about Glasgow! It's a city with a lot to offer, from its world-class museums and galleries to its thriving music and food scenes. I'd be happy to share more about my experiences and provide some photos to help you decide. Feel free to ask any questions you have about Glasgow, and I'll do my best to help!
