This Scottish museum is one of the most popular museums of transport in the UK.

It is in the Riverside Museum, where you can see the oldest pedal cycle in existence and the world's largest collection of cars and trucks made in Scotland, including the pioneering examples of Scottish manufacturers such as Argyll, Arrol-Johnston and Albion.

The visitors can see a total of over three thousand exhibits in the form of model ships and road vehicles - from horse-drawn vehicles, fire trucks, caravans and motorcycles to the toy cars and prams.

A lot of fun not only for children but also adults provides the possibility of boarding some of the exhibits.

One of the most interesting areas of the museum is the Kelvin Street, faithfully reflecting the streets of Glasgow from the years 1895 - 1930, with still living shops, photo studio and even with an Italian café, where you can relax and enjoy a coffee.

For anybody keen to gain more knowledge, over 90 interactive touch screens full of memories, images and video have been prepared.
