Welcome to Adventurers

Welcome to the Adventurers pages, developed exclusively as part of the Adventurers display in the Riverside Museum. The display presents the stories of five contemporary Scots - Ewan McGregor, Karen Darke, Mark Beaumont, Kate Rawles and Andy Brown - who set out on their own epic journeys, pushing themselves - and their vehicles - to the absolute limit in order to realise ambitions, live out dreams and see the world differently, with an entirely fresh perspective.

Here we introduce you to the five adventurers, reveal some of the music they listened to on their adventures, celebrate historic adventurers in Glasgow Museums' collections, and invite you to share your stories about adventures and journeys you've experienced. We hope you enjoy and that it will inspire you to visit the display and research our other collections. But most importantly, that you get out there and have your own adventure - and then tell us about it!

The Riverside Museum shop is stocking a range of books about our Adventurers journies. Visit the shop, or call 0141 287 2720 to find out what's in stock.  


We have film screenings, talks and more as part of this special display. Check our our events listings to find out about forthcoming events or Like us on Facebook where events and activities are listed regularly.
