Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Rated 5 stars by VisitScotland, providing programs of entertaining Science theatre, Planetarium, and around 300 hands-on interactive science exhibits over three floors, to introduce science to everyone. Interaction distinguishes GSC, very few exhibits in glass cases and many opportunities to participate in Science. Included workshops and shows are a highlight, ranging from shadow puppets for youngsters to computer coding, robotics and ethical hacking for adults. "BodyWorks" examines the science behind human health and well-being, "Powering the Future" the future challenges and solutions in our energy-hungry world, and the digital planetarium allows visitors to 'leave earth' and travel through the cosmos. Science Mall admission includes free workshops and shows, with add-on charges of £3.00 for access to the Planetarium. A shop and cafe are free to access. Schools and outreach programs extend the Centre's work into the community. The Centre is a registered charity with surpluses returned to the education mission. Car parking and public transport links or a 15 minute walk along the Clyde from the City centre. The adjacent IMAX cinema is now operated by Cineworld.

I've been to the Glasgow Science Centre twice and loved it. So much to do and it takes the full day - plus there's the I-MAX cinema just next door which is amazing also. So many different activities and small movies to go see and you learn do much too.
It is a bit pricey but they do family tickets and combination tickets with the cinema so doesn't seem that bad.

The kids (3) and adults (2) enjoyed the visit, plenty to see and do for every body although the centre was busy did not have to wait in line for to take part in the many displays and activity's. It cost us £54 to get in (yes im miserable) and felt it was a bit to dear for a family. No option to purchase a family ticket, which would have helped a bit, and as the centre is aimed at family's.

Been here a few times and each time have liked, couldn't go too many times though as it would just get boring but all in all quite a good place to have a bit of fun.
