About Balloon Powered Cars

Do you think you could power a small car with just a balloon? Come along and demonstrate your engineering skills by building a car out of recycling materials and by making it go using a balloon.

Suitable for all ages.

Glasgow Museums welcomes families and children of all ages and all our venues are FREE to visit.

Our displays and exhibitions are designed with families in mind, so you’ll always find something interesting to explore when you visit.

Events are FREE unless otherwise stated.

The activities listed here are for family groups and children. If you would like to arrange a visit for an organised group, please contact the individual museum in advance.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Balloon Powered Cars are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
