We love this place, there is so much to see and do. I have been visiting since I was wee and now I take my wee ones. If you visit Glasgow then visit this museum. You won't be disappointed - and the Salvador Dali is breathtaking

I can't fault this place, I love it and could spend all day wandering around and still not see everything. And you go back again and again as it's always changing something. It's very easy to get to and good parking, food is good and so is the little shop. Has sad memories as well for me as I used... More

A little disappointed in truth, and think they could do more to capture children imagination. You could see that the children were bored, and felt they could have more interactive areas where children could take part, like Scottish Museum has. Visited the Dinosaur exhibit, and again was left deflated considering you had to pay.
