Have been to Glasgow Science Centre multiple times with both Family and Friends. Loads of great things to do with loads of experiments for the kids and also the bigger kids. Expensive day out but totally worth it! Would also recommend the Cineworld IMAX which is also joined to the Science Centre. Only one screen but If you haven't been... More

I had asked my son what he thought about the Science Centre and this is what he said "It was a brilliant day out and I really liked the big boat and the crane and I liked the car I got to make and blow with a fan. The big lift was funny and scary and I could see all... More

We were so impressed with the Science Centre earlier in the year that we bought annual passports - what a good investment! We've been back several times (only an hour from home) and can honestly say that our three year old has found something new and exciting every visit. Today, on a gorgeously calm and sunny day, we decided to... More

An amazing place to take the grandchildren. A whole day can pass without us realising. Tried lots of the gadgets. Which gave us fun, interest and education. Wish it had been around when my own children were young. The first choice my grandchildren make every school holiday. We'll be back again and again.

We visited ''en masse ''with 2 over 65's one of who is disabled, two in the 30's and a toddler and no-one was disappointed. The museum is laid out over a number of floors all wheelchair accessible. The number of things to do and for a toddler to play on made it a great day. Many of the areas have... More
