RIVERSIDE MUSEUM REVIEW GLASGOW TOURIST FAMILY DAYS OUT IN GLASGOW

Well hello! It's been quite a while since I've written on here, but there's been a few occasions recently where I've thought something would make a good blog post as well as a video, so I'm going to start sharing some of our days out on my blog (alongside the vlog) for those of you that like to see the pictures and read a little bit about our adventures too. 

So in the last few months, Andy and I made a deal that we would start to explore more at the weekends. Rather than do the usual 'nandos, shopping, home for pizza and a movie' set-up, we've been planning a proper day out and visiting some tourist-y places with Oliver. It's funny how you can live in a city for almost 30 years, and never visit any of the major tourist attractions. My family came to visit from America a while ago and in the few weeks they were here,  they probably saw more of Scotland than I had!

Anyway, I think I'll do a few catch up posts for the last few weekends but our most recent day out was the Glasgow Transport Museum or the Riverside museum as it's now called. A museum isn't somewhere you'd normally take a toddler but I'd heard it was a good free day out for a family, and knew that Oliver would love to run around and see all the cars (given his car obsession right now). 

It's free entry, and we had a really fun chilled out morning looking at all the old cars & trains, sitting on the old buses and trams and chasing Oliver around. It has an old street set up, with old shops that you can visit. It's actually really interesting to see how Glasgow used to look and there's loads of different interactive spots dotted around to tell you more about it. There were loads of children there and it's definitely not the usual dare-I-say-it boring museum set-up.

Afterwards we headed out to The Tall Ship which is just outside. The museum is right by the water, and the huge ship is open for visitors all day too. We were able to push the pram onto the ship, and let Oliver run around on board. It's huge, and there's loads of space and lots of little rooms and areas to explore. It's a whole other museum in itself, and I really can't believe that you can visit these two places for free. It's somewhere we'd definitely visit again when Oliver is a bit older too. 

I'd definitely recommend checking out the transport museum and the tall ship as a free day out for the kids, especially in the easter holidays, if you're looking for something to do!

So here's the vlog from our day out ...
