The SV Glenlee sets sail for its new home

New home for the Tall Ship

Glasgow's Tall Ship, Glenlee, has moved to it's new location at the soon to be opened Riverside Museum.

After 12 successful years and welcoming over half a million visitors at Yorkhill Quay,the Glenlee made the move to her  new berth alongside the Riverside Museum on Thursday 5th May. 

Both The Tall Ship and the museum will open to the public on Tuesday 21st June.

The Tall Ship has undergone a £1.5 million refurbishment project launched by the Clyde Maritime Trust which owns and operates the vessel, to upgrade the Glenlee in time for the reopening.

Dr. Christopher Mason, Chairman of the Clyde Maritime Trust, said: “The Tall Ship will move to the new Pointhouse Quay on 5th May, so that the Glenlee can be exhibited permanently alongside the new Riverside Museum.   The ship will be a perfect complement both to Zaha Hadid’s iconic building and the collections displayed inside it.”
