Attraction Information

There are over 400 interactive exhibits at The Glasgow Science Centre to boggle, bemuse and offer a whole lot of learning!

Welcome to the new frontier of discovery where technically minded tykes can work as an electronic engineer for the day in fun-packed workshops. Head up to the digital fulldome planetarium to listen to the legend himself - Buzz Lightyear - fill you in on all there is to know about the Moon. In the Science Mall, kids can accustom themselves with the issues of our time by learning about renewable energy, as well as making wind-powered cars. You can take in a 3D wonder at Scotland’s biggest IMAX screen, from the ‘Space Station’ to ‘Under the Sea’. Then polish it all off with a trek up the Glasgow Tower - 127 metres high in the sky!

Do not miss the mind-bending Science Show Theatre. Here the resident team of geniuses dazzle and dizzy with an array of experiments. It’s a sure way to inspire the curious minds of tomorrow, because who knows what your children will grow up to achieve?
