  • This museum is absolutely first class for lots of reasons. A great experience for all ages. Lots to see and lots to enjoy. I took a small group of children with profound and complex needs. They had a fabulous time. This couldn't have been possible without all of the amazing staff at the museum. We were welcomed, accommodated with a room for lunch and asked frequently throughout our visit if we had everything we needed. The facilities are fabulous and made changing wee people's nappies very easy as there is a plinth and a hoist. I can do nothing more than give the museum and their wonderful staff a first class review.
  • Excellent museum. Not massive so you can get around it comfortably and see everything. Naturally biased towards the Clyde and its ship building heritage but lots of other interesting stuff to see as well. Enjoyed it. Well worth a visit. Oh, and it's free to get in. đź‘Ť
