A wonderful museum located on the grounds of Glasgow University, a place to visit as well. The displays were world class and signed with all pertinent information. Definitely worth a visit and easily accessible from the hop on hop off tour bus.

We did not take a car on this occasion but travelled to the Museum by public transport which is very good from the city to the West End of Glasgow. There is also an underground system to Hillhead in Byres Road and it is... More
