Partners of Riverside Museum

The success of the Riverside Museum project was delivered by a number of partners

Glasgow City Council

Glasgow City Council is the owner and principle funder of the first purpose-built transport museum in Glasgow at Riverside.  This breath-taking building is another world-class tourist attraction to add to Glasgow Museum's portfolio.

Heritage Lottery Fund

The Heritage Lottery Fund has provided £21.6 million towards the cost of the Riverside Museum, Phase 2 of Glasgow Museums Resource Centre and the creation of the Collections Navigator.   It is the largest HLF grant to any museum project in Scotland.    

Glasgow Harbour

Glasgow Harbour donated the land at Riverside to the City to be used for the new transport museum as part of the wider multi-billion pound flagship project of Clyde Waterfront regeneration.  Plans are now being developed for retail and leisure facilities at Glasgow Harbour.

Clyde Maritime Trust

The Tall Ship at Riverside is Glasgow's lovingly restored Clyde-built ship that was launched in 1896 and is owned and operated by Clyde Maritime Trust.  The Tall Ship is now berthed alongside the Riverside Museum at Pointhouse Quay.     

Riverside Museum Appeal

Riverside Museum Appeal is a charitable trust established to raise £5 million in sponsorship and donations from companies, trusts and individuals for the development of the new Riverside Museum. To date, it has raised £4.2 million. The Riverside Museum Appeal Trust is recognized as a Scottish Charity SC 033286.
