Glasgow Riverside Museum under Construction

The Riverside Museum is a planned new development for the Glasgow Museum of Transport, currently under construction in the Glasgow Harbour regeneration district of Glasgow, Scotland.

The Riverside Museum is expected to attract up to 1 million visitors a year, by creating a more accessible and environmentally stable home for Glasgow’s significant Transport and Technology collections, including exhibiting stored materials not currently on public display. The location within Glasgow Harbour celebrates the river Clyde, and also means that existing collection and visiting craft will be able to berth alongside the museum.<br>
Proposed to be opening in 2011 to cope with the expanded collection, currently partly housed in Kelvin Hall, the museum site by the River Clyde will house a new structure designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and engineers Buro Happold.
