Glasgow Science Centre has three separate attractions housed in one of Glasgow’s newest architectural landmarks on the Clyde.
Science Mall & Planetarium
The heart of Glasgow Science Centre is the Science Mall.
The gleaming titanium crescent overlooking the Clyde has three floors packed with hundreds of interactive exhibits that will fascinate you. The Science Mall also plays host to our interactive workshops where you can get up close and personal with Madagascan Hissing Cockroaches, make hot air balloons or build your own rocket to launch.
You can also visit the Science Show Theatre, the lab and Planetarium-one of the finest planetaria in the world.
The Planetarium offers the chance to see a night sky as it should be seen, with thousands of points of light above us. With its amazing star projector and controlled environment, our planetarium enables us to look afresh at the canopied heavens.
IMAX is believing — IMAX is the ultimate movie experience. With crystal clear images and wraparound digital surround sound, IMAX lets you feel like you’re really there.
With a screen bigger than a 5-a-side football pitch and a digital 14,000 watt 6.1 surround 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.
Almost a billion people around the world have been spellbound by the force and beauty of The IMAX Experience. Technically advanced and visually stunning, The IMAX Experience is the world’s most powerful and immersive movie experience.
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.
