Glasgow Science Centre information
Lonely Planet review
Scotland's flagship millennium project, the ultramodern Glasgow Science Centre, will keep the kids entertained for hours (that's middle-aged kids, too!). It brings science and technology alive through hundreds of interactive exhibits on four floors. Look out for the illusions (like rearranging your features through a 3-D head-scan) and the cloud chamber, which makes natural radiation visible. The museum consists of an egg-shaped titanium-covered IMAX theatre (phone for current screenings) and an interactive Science Mall with floor-to-ceiling windows – a bounty of discovery for young, inquisitive minds. There's also a rotating 127m high observation tower ;aplanetarium, where the Scottish Power Space Theatre brings the night sky to life, and a Virtual Science Theatre , which treats visitors to a 3-D molecular journey. To get here, take Arriva bus 24 from Renfield St or First Glasgow bus 89 or 90 from Union St.
