Venue Intro:

  • Science Mall at Glasgow Science Centre
    The heart of GSC is the Science Mall. The gleaming titanium crescent overlooking the Clyde has three floors packed with exhibits, cafes and shop. Explore and discover over 300 hands-on exhibits, interactive workshops, live science shows, labs, the amazing Virtual Science Theatre, E-Learning Centre and ScottishPower Space Theatre, one of the finest planetaria in the world.
  • IMAX® at Glasgow Science Centre
    With a screen bigger than a 5-a-side football pitch and a digital 12,000 watt sound system, the IMAX shows 2D and 3D films that will amaze and astound you. The IMAX camera looks at the world – and the universe – in a different way. After seeing an IMAX film you’ll never see a standard cinema the same way either.
  • Tower atGlasgow Science Centre
    The Glasgow Tower is the world's first tower capable of revolving through 360° from the ground up. Standing at over 122m (400 feet) in height, the Glasgow Tower has displays on the city's past as well as future development, together with a viewing platform that can give views of some 40 mile (64 km) north and south.
