Glasgow Science Centre, Glasgow Reviews
I visited the science centre today with my young children (1 and 2). The whole family had a great time and we spent more than 4 hours there. The first floor was full of experiments that the kids could try which were loads of fun for many ages. There was a young kids zone which had building materials, water moving equipment and exhibits on underwater creatures and on ships. The planetarium even managed to keep the kids entertained for 30 minutes, with a short tour of some of the planets (the planetarium costs a bit extra). The second floor was full of stuff about energy and where our energy comes from, a bit more targeted at older children and adults but the kids were still entertained. The third floor was all about the human body, again it would have been better if the kids were a bit older but they still really enjoyed it. If I had one complaint it would be that we queued a bit too much, not for the attractions but for tickets to get in, for a snack and for the lifts. The ticket price might seem high but it's worth it in my opinion. We were so impressed we upgraded to an annual ticket on the way out.
A wonderful science and technology centre that has a IMAX cinema, as well as lots of interactive exhibits, which include a clear, in-depth explanation of the science and technology behind it. There are also many cafes and designated places to eat your own food in the Glasgow Science Centre. The food there is not overly expensive, and the staff working there are very polite and friendly. If you regularly go, then a Glasgow Science Passport is a good option. For £30 for an adult and £24 for a concession/child (between 3 and 18), you get unlimited free entry to the Science Mall, 10% off birthday parties, discounted parking, and a members only queue, to save time on busy days. In total, I recommend this place to tourists/travellers, anyone interested in science/technology and families!
Excellent day out for all. Plenty of hands on experiments all with well detailed instructions on how they work. An ideal place to learn physics, chemistry and biology whilst having fun. Very clean, reasonably priced, small cafe serves lunch / refreshments. Staff very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Buy the planetarium and Tower add ons and you can't go wrong.
Amazing place. Great fun, with loads to do. You could easily spend all day here. Can't wait to go back. Me and my 12 year old daughter had a fantastic time. Educational and fun, what more could you want?
Lots of interesting items, rather busy at the weekend but nevertheless very fun! A small area for those under 7... could do with being bigger. Staff were all lovely And very helpful. Overall a great day out
