Museum is a new development for the Glasgow Museum of
Transport, completed on 20 June 2011, at Pointhouse Quay.The
location of the museum is on the site of the former A. & J.
Inglis Shipyard within Glasgow Harbour, on the north bank of the
River Clyde and adjacent to its confluence point with the River
Kelvin. This site enables the Clyde Maritime Trust's SV Glenlee and
other visiting craft to berth alongside the museum.
Art Gallery & Museum houses one of Europe's great art
collections. It is amongst the top three free-to-enter visitor
attractions in Scotland. There is a popular myth in Glasgow, that
the building was accidentally built back-to-front, and the architect
jumped from one of the towers in despair, when he realised his
mistake. This is only an urban myth. The grand entrance was always
intended to face into Kelvingrove Park.

A medieval cathedral with an active Christian congregation in the Church of Scotland.
The history of the cathedral is linked with that of the city, and is allegedly located where the patron saint of Glasgow, Saint Mungo, built his church. The tomb of the saint is in the lower crypt.
Necropolis is a Victorian cemetery.
It is on a low but very prominent hill to the east of Glasgow Cathedral. Fifty thousand individuals have been buried here. Approximately 3500 monuments exist here and so not every grave has a stone.
Billy Connolly has said: "Glasgow's a bit like Nashville, Tennessee: it doesn't care much for the living, but it really looks after the dead.
