  • Fun for all ages, can spend ALL day exploring and still not fully see everything, worth the money. Sandwiches etc from the cafe have little choice and the ones we did buy where 90% salad filling and bland, need more variety, just plain toppings should be available for fussier eaters too..also no staff seen throughout the levels, would have been good if there where people on the floors for assistance if ever needed, other than that, fab place and will be back

  • The Glasgow science centre is a great day out for the whole family. There is an entrance fee but it's not overly expensive. Inside is filled with a huge number of interactive exhibits. Three full floors of science experiments that anybody can have fun taking part in. There is also a 3D planetarium you can go in and be taken a tour of the universe. Also they have a small 3D cinema screen. There's a cafe and a kids soft play area too.

  • Great family day out, if it’s a rainy day it’s the place to be. Planetarium, fantastic (free) live shows, great staff always willing to show kids the odd experiment. Cafe is good and the views from the tower are possibly the best views of the city. Well worth getting the annual pass if you plan on coming back

  • I like the science centre but I feel there is something missing. It's okay but there is no wow factor. The best section if visiting would be the body workshops. You get to put your body to the test in several different ways and keep a record of it which, if visiting again, could be tested once more to see if you can beat it. The other floors are kind of boring, kids might love this if visiting for a family day out.

  • This is a great place to take the kids on a day out. I thought there might be some more adult themed parts too but I didn't find that when I was there. There are a few things of interest but not enough for adults I think. As the place is more kid-themed there were a lot of kids running around and the general ambience was a fairly noisy one when I visited. Not necessarily bad or good just so you're aware of what it's like. The kids did seem to be having a great time though so a good place for a family day out or at least for a few hours of fun.
