The Museum of Transport in the Kelvin Hall is one of the most popular museums of transport in the British Isles. It attracts half a million visitors a year. It was founded in 1964 and houses many exhibits of national and international importance.
The museum uses its collections of vehicles and models to tell the story of transport by land and sea, with a unique Glasgow flavour. Here you will find the oldest surviving pedal cycle and the finest collection in the world of Scottish-built cars. They include such world-famous makes as Argyll, Arrol Johnson and Albion.
The breadth of the collection is impressive. It features all forms of transport from horse-drawn vehicles to fire engines, from motorcycles to caravans. Even toy cars and prams are included.
The Museum of Transport has been a firm favourite with generations of Glasgow children and their parents. For an entertaining day out it really has something for all the family.
Museum of Transport is closed. The Riverside Museum, Glasgow’s new museum of transport and travel, opens on 21 june 2011.
