A Fair Life

On January 23rd 2017 a brand new display opens at Riverside exploring the history of Scottish fairgrounds and those people who travel the country taking the fun of the fair along with them. The display has been created with a group of Glasgow

'Show people' who tell their own story through objects and images. Just a few of the things you’ll see are: a waltzer car you can sit inside for a photograph, two beautiful carousel horses, a steam traction engine and an iconic open-mouthed clown game. Come along and see for yourself! You’ll find the display on your left as you enter at the North Entrance.
