Riverside Museum#5 in Best Things To Do in Glasgow
This free museum displays the city's transportation history. One neat exhibit showcases a 1938 Glasgow street scene "with period shop-fronts, era-appropriate vehicles and a reconstruction of one of the Glasgow Underground stations," according to Frommer's. Some travelers highlight this exhibit, while others really enjoyed the Clyde Room's model boats. Visitors were also highly impressed with the in-house café.
The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more info, visit its website.

#1 The Burrell Collection
Travelers express astonishment at this museum's near pitch-perfection. The Burrell Collection's glass walls not only encase a variety of objects and artworks, but they also usher in the surrounding woodlands. In the collection, donated by the late millionaire Sir William Burrell, you'll find everything from Chinese ceramics to Rodin sculptures. And once you're done with the art, you can wander about the surrounding Pollok Country Park.
Open daily, the Burrell Collection can be viewed for free. And travelers highly recommend you take advantage of this steal, saying the museum's variety of art and its milieu are beyond compare.
