This was my second visit to Sharmanka ( hurdy gurdy ). My first visit was several months ago and I returned because
I wanted to see if it would be as enjoyable.
If you haven't been here, before you go check out opening times when you can view the exhibits, and show times when you can see them working so you won't be disappointed.
If you organise group visits and are looking for something different, this venue may be for you as special arrangements can be made.

A great way to spend an hour or so - never seen anything like the kinetic sculptures unique experience in Glasgow and probably in Scotland, worth the £5 entrance fee.would go back at the drop of a hat

I loved this, something very unique with a great back story and real skill. Well worth a look if you have some time to spare.

Sharmanka was the highlight of my trip to Glasgow ~ Insightful, creative, atmospheric and entwined in history & emotion!

A wonderful show ~ a superb performance that combines craftsmanship, sound, light, movement and objects with a soul..........you really do have to experience this for yourself!
