About The Tall Ship At Riverside

The Clyde Maritime Trust (Scottish Charity No: SC004608) owns the barque Glenlee, the principal exhibit at The Tall Ship at Riverside. Of the many hundreds of ships built in Glasgow’s shipyards, the Glenlee is one of only five Clyde built ships still afloat in the world today and she is the only one of her kind in the UK. The Tall Ship is an independent museum committed to the preservation and interpretation of the Glenlee and the maritime history of the area for the benefit of local people and visitors to Glasgow.

The Tall Ship operates a programme of year-round maritime themed events and activities, with specially devised talks and tours, school visits and costumed volunteer days. Explore every nook and cranny of the Glenlee, including the refurbished Captain’s cabin, with our brand new audio guide facility, a fun way to learn the history of the ship. Visit the mini cinema and under 5’s play area in the cargo hold, take part in our mouse hunt and put your questions to our working ship’s crew. We also have a souvenir gift shop and coffee shop on board.
