Glasgow and Liverpool (UK Trip Post 3)

We're going to the UK in spring--London and the North, and this is probably our last trip to the UK, so we're anxious to see as much as possible of the most important things (in our estimation). We're really not into scenery (so will skip the Scottish Highlands--on the advise of this Forum--and the Lake District). Our interests are history, art, archaeology, museums, architecture and food. We also like cities--especially big, old dirty cities like Cairo, Istanbul, Palermo, Naples . ..

So, should we take a day to see Glasgow and a day to see Liverpool?

We'd take a train from Edinburgh to Glasgow, primarily to see the Transportation Museum. I went to the one in York on our last trip and liked it a lot. I think we can work it in as I've only got three "must-do"s in Edinburgh (The Castle, Holyrood House, and National Museum) which we can easily do in the two remaining days we will be there. Won't do Arthur's Seat because spouse has bad knees. The alternative would probably be to visit Stirling Castle by train instead of by car after leaving Edinburgh.

We'll almost certainly have to arrive by car at Liverpool, and want primarily to see the Merseyside Maritime Museum. We really enjoyed the Halifax Maritime Museum last fall, and plan to see the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. We'd visit Liverpool on our way to Conwy, Wales, and plan to see a couple of the castles in northern Wales and Chester in our two full days in that area.

If so, why, and if not, why not and what else to see instead?

Thanks for your help.
