About Invention Craze

Get inspired by the different inventions in our museum and then design your own one. Will it be a flying submarine, or a personal chocolate machine? There are no restrictions to your creativity and innovativeness!

Glasgow Museums welcomes families and children of all ages and all our venues are FREE to visit. Events are also FREE unless otherwise stated.

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

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 Invention Craze are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
