Tips / Destination

Explore these museums on a rainy day in Glasgow and you’ll have a great time.

The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum houses treasures from throughout the ages with arms and armaments featuring heavily alongside natural history collections. There is also a huge art collection.

Next up is the Riverside Museum, a multi-award-winning space designed by legendary architect Zaha Hadid. Exhibits focus on the transport history of Scotland.

If you are into anthropology, check out the Hunterian Museum. The artifacts were donated in 1783 by William Hunter, a renowned anatomist and physician, and cover archaeology, anatomy and nature.

Provand’s Lordship is a medieval house museum preserved as it was at the time it was built in 1741. The old furniture is a highlight. Just next door to Provand’s Lordship is the St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, which covers all the major religions in the world.

Another highlight is the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens, which combines a museum and a glasshouse. Exhibits tell the story of the population of Glasgow from 1750 to the present, and is found in Glasgow Green, the oldest park in the city.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
