Great day out with the kids! Can be quite busy during school holidays and weekends. Cafe is reasonably priced but you are free to take a packed lunch and sit at the picnic benches. Parking is paid for but not too expensive. Definitely recommend for a fun inspirational day out :-)

Very interactive science centre that's absolutely great for children of all ages. The planetarium is amazing and by far my favourite feature though the rotating tower is pretty cool as well. Our annual "passports" cost £27 per person but, given how often we go there with our little toddler, they're excellent value for money.

Fantastic place to keep your kids and yourself entertained and busy. You can easily spend here whole day playing and exploring science world. After your journey through play stations, experiments areas, exhibitions, you can stop for something to eat and drink in restaurant at the ground floor of the centre, highly recommend this place👌

The Science centre is good for kids as well as elderly people. There are a lot of different scientific concepts which we can touch and feel or even execute many of them ourselves. Also there are some brain games for kids as well. As far as the entry fee is concerned there are two options. One an yearly subscription and a one time ticket. If you are definitely going to visit it in a year then I feel the yearly subscription would be beneficial. One can usually spent about a couple of hours out here. Enjoyed being there with my kid and he enjoyed a lot too. Please hit the "Like" icon if you find it helpful.

Wonderful place! Both children had a fantastic time and we did too. Youngest child is on the spectrum and had the most fun on the first level, lots of cause and effect activities that are easy for all ages and abilities to enjoy. I don't think we managed to do even half of the activities available, will definitely be back.

Myself and my 2 daughter's aged 7 and 3 visited the science centre today! We arrived for opening at 10am, we had the whole of the 1st floor virtually to ourselves for around an hour! Then we visited the planetarium for the space show! It was so brilliant and even my 3 year old was memorized by the screen which surrounds the seats. We made our way through the other levels and then visited the cafe, kids meals very reasonably priced and service superb! It was getting busy when we left but you could spend a whole day! 5 star from us, I will certainly be back!

We very much enjoyed this museum during our visit to Glasgow. I visited with my 2.5 year old son. He loved everything! Quite an extensive museum and in a great location on the River Clyde. There was a great area for younger kids too. We started about 3 hours.

Very impressed. Definitely better for ages 7+ my oldest child was 4 and the tables were all too high for her to really get involved. Unfortunately we went on a day with many school classes there, that were very loud and disruptive at times. My child is autistic and really struggled with this but we leave Glasgow before the autism friendly day sadly. I'd definitely love to try again when she's a little older. So many interesting things for kids.

Great family day out. The cafe food is superb but expect to queue for a table. Planetarium is definitely worth a visit. My kids go nuts with so much to do.

The Pink Floyd nights were great fun in the Science Centre. The way they can show you the Night Skies, Stars and also planetary science is Fantastic it is something else. The Staff are also Very helpful and friendly. I have had personally staff going that extra bit further than most people will usely go. Finding replacement seats for me and also when visiting the pleasantness around the place makes you want to return to other things other than what you went for. All in I would recommend this place for Everyone to visit at some point. Very good for Children, families and couples too. Ten Out Of Ten 10

Kids and adults could spend hours in here and they wouldn't be bored for a second. Worth the ticket price. Plenty to do and see. Everything is interactive. Additionally. The free science show is great for under 10's. The paid planetarium is stunning and exceptionally presented. Both run hourly. So they are easy to catch, no matter the time of your visit. The only negatives. It hasn't changed much in the last 4 years. ...and the, once beautiful, water feature (exterior). Has become a brown, stagnant, puddle.

Absolutely amazing day out. One of the best science museums we’ve seen. Two and four yr old loved every second as much as we did. So much information spaced out across 4 floors with so many hands on activities to suit all ages. A small water play/pirate themed area for younger children, enclosed with gates to allow free play & experimenting. Do not go to Glasgow without visiting here, really does suit all ages/adults. Can’t wait to go back one day! They also validate your parking ticket so it’s only £3 for all day. You can easily spend all day in here.

Only went here to go up the Glasgow tower. It cost £6.50 each and is well worth the view at the top. Only downside is it is not 360°. However the area you can't see is quite small. There is no seating at the top and you need to be capable of walking down the staircase inside the tower if there is an emergency evacuation. All in all a good attraction.

Excellent exhibitions, you can learn very interactively about many different areas of science. The staff are really friendly and are happy to take any questions. The planetarium is particularly great and well worth the extra few pounds. You can test your knowledge and even health at the body works and save your videos for later. The illusions are also particularly enjoyable!

The children play area was the best for my 2,5 years old. For the rest of the adventures he was a bit young still but we enjoyed it. Most staff are lovely and extremely nice. Some on the other hand very ignorant. But overall I am very happy with the experience and will be back soon

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?

Breathtaking building, great planetarium. Impressive restaurant. Super friendly staff. Not as big inside as we expected. Too many experiments and pieces out of order. A bit overpriced in my opinion. Nice experience though. Wirth seeing.
Thomas McLean | Aug 12, 2018
Great place for kids. They can learn and explore all the time. I have a science passport and we go whenever the weather isn’t great outside. I’ve been at least 10 times now with my 2/3 year old and we have yet to get bored. For people who are close by it’s a great resource to have and for people having a wander around the city it’s a great place to spend a few hours out of their day.

Went once when I was really young but that was ages ago and don't really have any memory of anything that is there. Also it was maybe 10 years ago so it has probably changes lots as science changes a lot in 10 years because people discover newer and more interesting things. All in all it was a great day out full of many memerobile moments and lots of laughs I think but because I was so young I really don't remember. 5 STARS EASY DECISION
