Details
Dubbed Glasgow’s answer to the Guggenheim, the £74 million waveshaped Riverside Museum, designed by acclaimed architect Zaha Hadid, became the new home of the city’s transport museum and opened on 21st June 2011. In the first three months since its launch opening, the museum has attracted more than 750,000 visitors.

Conservation By Design supplied over 70 individually designed exhibition showcases for the museum, to house previously unseen exhibits. The showcases display more than 3,000 objects – including the oldest surviving pedal cycle and the finest collection of Scottish-built cars in the world.
