The venue, on the banks of the River Clyde, will house the city’s transport collection, which was previously displayed at the Kelvin Hall.
Split over two floors, the Riverside Museum will showcase more than 3,000 objects including vehicles, ship models, toys, uniforms and paintings. The majority of the exhibits fall into one of the museum’s 150 ‘story displays’, which tell the personal stories behind the objects and introduce hundreds of individuals from bicycle-makers and tram conductors to skateboarders and Spitfire pilots.
The tall ship, ‘Glenlee’, which will be berthed alongside the museum, will also open to the public on the same day.
Entry to the museum will be free and the ship offers reduced rates for groups of 10 or more.
