An innovative mix of sharp zig zag angles and light — you certainly can’t deny the architectural prowess of Zaha Hadid in the design and overall essence of Riverside Museum. As the home base of Glasgow’s transport museum, the wealth of exhibits span from trains and bikes, to fancy cars and basically anything with a wheel or engine! Of course, an array of ship models and accompanying info help paint the picture of Glasgow’s status as a former shipbuilding empire. All in all, an unmissable museum worthy of a whole day out.
Just another masterpiece to come from the University of Glasgow, the Hunterian is the oldest museum in Scotland. Dotted around different buildings are a number of broadly ranging subjects from The Mackintosh House and The Zoology Museum, to the Hunterian Art Gallery and the Anatomy Museum. All are equally as spellbinding as the next. The extensive and impressive collections for the most part were gifted to the university in 1783 by Scottish anatomist and doctor William Hunter following his death. With exhibits for days on end, the Hunterian is one of those magical places that sends the good kind of shivers up your spine.
