The Riverside Museum, Glasgow, exterior and interior views

AnElephantCant believe he has never
Written about the Riverside Museum before
Beautifully situated at the side
Of the great River Clyde
It is a haunt he and Jack both adore

And now the bold duo are ecstatic
They have one more reason to cheer
This marvellous site
To their great delight
Is voted European Museum of the Year

The building itself is quite stunning
Designed to emulate ocean waves
Inside the exhibits
Ensure fascinating visits
So that even AnElephant behaves

He loves the interactive approach here
Which help him and the kids understand
How welders are trained
Steam power and camouflage explained
And Jack simulates crashes by hand

There are buses and trams and motor cars
A steam locomotive that is really quite vast
And children can gaze
At a host of displays
Which highlight the Clydeside’s famous shipbuilding past

AnElephant does something amazing
Completes his whole piece with no rhyme for museum
When your trip is planned
And you’re next in Scotland
Head to Glasgow and just Carpe Diem

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    I see that the means of transport to get there are really modern (the zebra is an unusual touch)! What’s exhibited, though?

    That’s awesome. If I do manage to get to Scotland at some point, I will attempt to go there.
