GlasgowMuseums and Galleries
Depicting the history of transport on road, rail and sea over the centuries, Transport Museum houses steam locomotives, electric and horse drawn trams, buses and cars. A splendid addition is the recreation of a Glasgow Street scene from 1938 which the visitor is able to explore.
Glasgow's Underground railway history is faithfully recreated in its own unique underground station.
On the upper level, the history of bicycles and motor cycles is displayed and leads visitors to the beautiful “Clyde Room” where the original shipyard models of the Clyde's proud past are exhibited.

Today it houses a superb collection of paintings (among others) Botticelli, Rembrandt and Picasso.
