I went there for the Explorathon, which was great, because I could enter for free and they had many interesting stalls and talks. You can try all sorts of games and puzzles, adults and kids can enjoy it alike. Educational and fun.

Great place for kids of all ages. Always find something new to see. There's special 'hands on' events on a regular basis too.

This is a fantastic place to visit, no matter what age you are, so much to see and do. Its very much hands on and it will take a good few hours to go the Centre. I defy any adult to go to the Seience Centre and not want to get stuck into the various tasks you can do.

Went here for Xmas night out and they are so strict! They serve bottles of drink to people and have bouncers on the dance floor watching your every move. They are not shy in constantly telling you what not to do and telling people to leave. Not enjoyable atall

A great experience and very informative! Great day out for the family and kids, being close to the river also gives exceptional views. Not overly priced and the added bonus if there is an Imax film to keep the kids interested.

The Glasgow Science Centre is a brilliant day out for both children & adults! Our two years old thoroughly enjoyed our visit, especially the story telling in the planetarium especially for toddlers! I'd advise avoiding peak times like school holidays & rainy days as it can get quite busy. My main tip would be to use tesco clubcard vouchers if... More

There is so much to see and do at this place and not just for children. There is plenty for adults to do as well. There are plenty activities for young and old to enjoy and we even had the pleasure? of holding a cockroach! There was the opportunity to make 'fossils' and we thoroughly enjoyed the planetarium. As always... More

This attraction is fantastic for all ages. I have been several times and learn something new every time. My 6 year old loves it and could spend hours on end here. You can eat in the cafe or take a packed lunch with you. It is also home of the massive IMAX cinema screen!
