1/2 Day Museum Tour

Our city is stuffed with museums and galleries, all of which are worth a visit. However, with a limited ½ day to spend, we’ve picked a manageable mix that will give you a diverse taste of what’s on offer.

  • Board the bus at our main stop (Stop 1) at George Square to enjoy the first part of your tour.
  • Hop-off at The Riverside Museum (Stop 12) for a visit to the museum and The Tall Ship and a coffee or snack in their café.
  • Hop back on board to continue to Glasgow University (Stop 14) where you will find the Hunterian Art Gallery and Museum.
  • Then it’s only a short walk to Byres Road for lunch or a snack before hopping back on the bus at Byres Road (stop 15) to enjoy the rest of the tour.

Entry to the Riverside Museum and Hunterian Art Gallery & Museum are free. Opening times approx 10am to 5pm but Hunterian is closed on Mondays.
