Riverside Museum Glasgow :

The Riverside Museum is a new development for the Glasgow Museum of Transport, completed on 20 June 2011, at Pointhouse Quay in the Glasgow Harbour regeneration district of Glasgow, Scotland. The next day it opened to the public.[2] On 18th May 2013, the museum was announced as the Winner of the 2013 European Museum of the Year Award.

Riverside is home to some of the world’s finest cars, bicycles, ship models, trams and locomotives. Interactive displays and the hugely popular historic Glasgow street scene bring the objects and stories to life.

Collection:

As well as housing many of the existing collections of the Glasgow Museum of Transport, the city has acquired additional items to enhance the experience:

L. S. Lowry: Cranes and Ships, Glasgow Docks – acquired at Christie's in November 2005 for £198,400, the painting is presently on display at the Kelvin Hall. The 1947 work was bought with the help of Glasgow businessman Willie Haughey of City Refrigeration Holdings, and a £20,000 grant from the National Art Collections Fund.

SAR Class 15F 4-8-2 steam locomotive, No.3007 - built by the Glasgow-based North British Locomotive Company at its Polmadie Works in 1945, the locomotive was a gift from South African railways operator Spoornet to the project. It was on display in George Square for a short time in 2007, as part of the effort to raise the £5million public contribution funding.
