Joycee won’t be pleased, she’s away for a few days for work and missed it. I got away after a meeting in the morning and took Holly along with my maw and paw to see the new Transport Museum on opening day. Despite it being a minging rainy day it was mobbed which was great to see. Holly loved it, the old version in the Kelvin Hall was a favourite haunt, I’m sure this one will be too.
I’ve been going to the Glasgow Transport Museums with my folks for 40 years and this is the third venue for me. I have many issues with the way they’re displaying the collections which I’ll explore fully during my first visit on a day when it’s got less people than exhibits, but on a positive note the green colour they’ve painted it inside which folk are grimacing at is an engineering colour so is entirely appropriate, from metal and wood working machinery to workshops and factory floors to the internal surfaces of a Spitfire it’s been around for a while. So, they got that right at least. Now all we need are step ladders or binoculars to see the displays.
