Doesn’t seem that long...
Thanks to the staff at Scottish Football Museum for helping make this happen....
Great day oh with the Grandchildren! Everyone was so welcoming.
A wonderful day out with the Grandchildren!
I’ve been attempting to make a booking now (3x emails & 4x voicemails left on unanswered telephones) for the stadium tour and museum. Can you please respond, otherwise I will have to seek refund of gift vouchers purchased.
I wonder if anyone knows anything about Crawford Union FC. My grandfather played for them, and I think this was taken around 1910, when he was 19. He lived in Partick, and given that people usually lived and worked locally, we're guessing the team was also Partick based. He's sitting to the left of the guy with the cup. His name was Willie Boyce and he was a Red Clydesider. The only other information I have is that the goalkeeper was deaf.
I'd just like to thank tour guide Jim and everyone involved with the museum and tour for a great day out. I took my dad for his 81st birthday and we both had a marvellous time and felt very well looked after throughout. I've already recommended you to my friends and would imagine I shall return in the future. You have something for Scotland to be very proud of there.
Thanks for a great day, happy 7th birthday Aodhán. Pat was a fantastic host 👍🏼⚽️🎉
Hi there, can you advise, do we need to book a tour in advance or can we just turn up (just two of us) & on average how long does the tour & museum visit take ?
The Football Action Group based in the east coast town of Carnoustie visited the Museum on Tuesday (11th) and by all accounts had a marvellous day made all the more so by a most entertaining and informative tour guide by the name of Jim. There was a magic moment when one of the group's number, an ex-player, walked over to the Register section and spoke briefly to the archivist giving his name, where he played and a rough date of when he was signed. Within two minutes the big book was plucked deftly from a veritable wall of registers and with two flicks of the pages our man's name was found. The archivist did not even have to power up his computer! This moment was particularly poignant as John has dementia and will freely talk of not being able to recall many aspects of his every day life but my goodness he (along with all members of the Football Action Group), remember with stark clarity, details of footballing and players back in their day. Following the tour, it was time for lunch. The sudden influx of (25 strong) hungry visitors left the cafe staff totally unfazed and they served the group (as well as a steady stream of other customers) with a smile and completely pleasant friendly manner. Every single member of the Football Action Group from Carnoustie left Hampden Stadium that day with a smile that said "We scored" and you can't say better than that!!
Hi guys, can you help? I'm bringing someone with a disability to the museum and stadium tour tomorrow. Can you clarify how much it would cost for him, and for me as his carer? Any help greatly appreciated.
