A Distinctive Museum for Visitors to Glasgow

The CEO of Lifechek Drug, Bruce Gingrich now oversees more than 30 pharmacies across the country. He also has involved himself in the service industry, founding several pubs in Texas. Outside of his dedication to entrepreneurship, Bruce Gingrich has traveled across the world, recently visiting the city of Glasgow in Scotland.

The Riverside Museum of Transport and Travel in Glasgow holds an impressive array of bicycles, trains, cars, and ship models. The museum even hosts historic interactive displays, including three streets with model shops from 1895 to the 1980s. Replicas include an Italian cafe from the 1930s and an Edwardian photography studio. Right outside the museum rests the Tall Ship at Riverside, the only Clyde-built sailing ship in the United Kingdom.

Outfitted with metal curving walls, the Riverside Museum hearkens back to the shipyards on the Clyde where ships were built under shipwright’s capable guidance. Open at 10 a.m. every day (except Friday and Sunday when it opens at 11 a.m.), the museum accepts visitors until 5 p.m. If desired, visitors may participate in the regular guided tours.
