Scotland's new Museum of Transport and Travel was completed in 2011. The award-winning building by Zaha Hadid houses over 3000 objects, from bicycles and cars to a 100-ton Class 15F steam engine, built in Glasgow for South African Railways. With many interactive exhibits (including three recreated streets with shops you can enter) it's a paradise for public transport fans.
