A new visitor trail, Compass on the Clyde, provides a route to explore the history and heritage of the waterfront around the Riverside Museum.

There is much more to the new Riverside Museum than what's inside the building! This new trail, sponsored by Clyde Waterfront,  has been developed to provide a route around the circumference of the building, with information about the places that made the Clyde one of the world's most famous rivers.

The Compass on the Clyde trail provides 8 stops in total, each with information and a location clearly marked on the map, ideal to help visitors find their way around the Riverside site, discovering the context of Glasgow's newest museum while taking in the sights and sounds of the river.

The trail will help visitors connect with Glasgow's shipbuilding and engineering past, as well glimpsing the regeneration which bringing transformation to the River Clyde in the centre of Glasgow today.
