Museums, Glasgow

Scotland's insider take:

Opened in June 2011, Riverside Museum is a zinc and glass temple to transport designed by Zaha Hadid. It has over 3,000 objects and 150 interactive displays, including three re-created streets circa 1895-1980 lined with vintage trolleys and trams (100 Pointhouse Place; 44-141-287-2720). The four-story Glasgow Science Centre is a fun museum that holds interactive exhibits, a planetarium, Scotland's only IMAX theater, and the Glasgow Tower, Scotland's tallest freestanding structure (50 Pacific Quay; 44-141-420-5000). The People's Palace and Winter Gardens provides an informed and fun social context to the city. It's connected to the Victorian Winter Garden glasshouse, where you can sit amidst the greenery and have a cup of tea—very civilized (Glasgow Green; 44-141-271-2951). Clear up the mystery of the bagpipes at the National Piping Centre (30–34 McPhater St., Cowcaddens; 44-141-353-0220).
