Glasgow Sights

Summerlee–Museum of Scottish Industrial Life

  • Heritage Way

Fodor's Review

On the site of the old Summerlee Ironworks, this vast and exciting museum re-creates a mine and the miners' rows (the cottages where miners and their families lived). An electric tram transports you here from the huge hall where industrial machines vie with exhibits about ordinary life. Later you can stroll along the canal and take the kids to a fine playground. The drive from Glasgow takes less than 15 minutes.
