Hillview visit Riverside Motor Museum

The residents of Hillview in Sauchie, were excited about their trip to the Motor Museum in Glasgow this month.

The Motor Museum in Glasgow was a great place for the residents to visit, because there were models of different vehicles from before the war, they were able to recall how they used to travel and how transport has changed over the last few decades.

Riverside Museum has 9 main display themes:

  • The Streets
  • The River Clyde
  • Transport and Leisure
  • Made in Scotland
  • Looks and Fashion
  • Crossing the World
  • Cutting Edge: Past, Present and Future
  • Disasters and Crashes
  • Getting There

Within these themes there are over 150 separate in-depth ‘story displays’.

There is not one but three streets at Riverside Museum and, for the first time, there is access into the ‘shops’.  There is also access platforms up to all the locomotives as well as a wide range of interpretation including over 90 large touch screens full of images, memories and films about the collections on display as well as over 20 interactive hands on exhibits.

The objects on display have increased from 1400 on display at the old museum to over 3000 at Riverside Museum including a new addition, and one of the largest locomotives on display in Britain, a huge export South African locomotive designed and made in Glasgow.

At Riverside, many of the most significant cars and bicycles are displayed on the floor of the museum and there is far more information provided about them. The cars on the ‘car wall’ and the bicycles on the suspended ‘velodrome’ are interpreted from the floor (and from the first floor) by large touch screens.  Each of the cars has been photographed 360 degrees inside and out and a huge amount of related photographs and information is included on the touch screens.

Hillview Court provides specialist nursing and dementia care in a purpose built environment for up to 48 elderly people.
