Clydebank Museum may be low on high technology, but it is high on human interaction. Although the collection of historic sewing machines attracts specialists from around the world, primary classes usually come to find out about the Clydebank blitz. They can talk to museum volunteers who lived through it and see the gas masks and civil defence gear on show. There are also displays on the local engineering and shipbuilding industries.
The museum is in Clydebank's 19th-century Town Hall. School visits can incorporate a tour of the building, taking in the court room, holding cells and marriage suite, and may get to speak to some of the people who work there.
