Riverside Museum car park can be busy, especially at weekends and during holidays. Remember you can use the car park at the old Museum of Transport (Bunhouse Rd, opposite Kelvingrove Museum) - then its only a 15 minute signposted walk.
Riverside Museum is just off the Clydeside Expressway - M8, junction 19
Riverside Museum has a fantastic location in the west end of the city. From the M8 motorway, take Junction 19 and travel west bound along the Clydeside Expressway (A814) for about one mile to Pointhouse road. Then turn left into the Riverside Car Park area.
There is a Pay & Display car park at Riverside - £1 for a 4 hour maximum stay.
The car park has 12 spaces reserved for blue badge holders and these spaces are free of charge with no time restrictions. The car park also has designated parent and child spaces.
The disabled drop off point for the Riverside Museum is via the slipway road (to the right as you drive onto the Riverside site). The Tall Ship disabled drop off point is the access road left of the museum.
There is also a Pay & Display car park at Kelvin Hall, Bunhouse Road (the previous home of the Museum of Transport) that's only a 15 minute signposted walk to Riverside.
Visitors may also use the SECC car park - charges apply - then it's just a short walk to the museum.
Due to the phenomenal success of Riverside Museum and The Tall Ship - and in response to visitor feedback, coach parking and a car park extension are to be provided at the Riverside.
Work will start week beginning 11 June and take 4 to 6 weeks. It will not interfere with the normal operation of the museum or The Tall Ship.
The new vehicle parking will provide dedicated coach parking throughout the year for school, tourist and care groups and an additional 200 car spaces at peak visiting times and to support major events.
This brings the total number of car parking spaces to over 500.
