We present concepts of science and technology in unique and inspiring ways - interactive exhibits, planetarium, live science shows & Imax 3D cinema.

There are many elements that make Glasgow Science Centre one of Scotland’s must-see visitor attractions:

The Science Mall

The Centre is home to hundreds of interactive exhibits throughout the three engaging floors of our Science Mall – why not start your journey by taking the lift up to Floor 3 and find out all about yourself in BodyWorks? Let your imagination run wild in our Be Creative, Be Innovative zone on Floor 2; and on Floor 1, be captivated by the hugely popular classics like the plasma ball, chaos pendulums and whispering dishes... Little Explorers can even take the helm of our ship on the Big Explorer!

Planetarium

There’s a primal, instinctive urge to go ‘wow’ when it comes to gazing up at over 9,000 twinkling stars in our Planetarium. Seeing the night sky in all its glory and touring through the heavens with our friendly and well-informed star guides will leave a lasting memorable impression.

Glasgow Tower

Glasgow Tower is a revolutionary structure and a world first. Standing at 127 metres tall, it is the only fully rotating building in the world. Board now and enjoy unrivalled panoramic views of the city.
