Clydebuilt Maritime Heritage Centre

The Clydebuilt Maritime Heritage Centre on the southern banks of the River Clyde, at the Braehead Centre in Glasgow, highlights the history of the city, in particular how the "Tobacco Lords" and shipbuilding industry moulded the city. The exhibits at the centre are presented as displays, audio and visual records, hands-on activities and historic vessels for the public to board. Notable are the M.V. Kyles, the earliest Clyde-built vessel still afloat within the UK, and virtual reality experience of being a river pilot steering a ship up the Clyde. The Kyles, built in Paisley in 1863, is an iron-hulled coaster which was in service until the early 1980s.
