Science Centre, Glasgow, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on Glasgow’s Science Centre, an education oriented visitor attraction located at Pacific Quay on a regenerated section of Glasgow’s waterfront.

This facility was opened in 2001 and is focused on science and technology. Key features are:

  • Hundreds of interactive exhibits.
  • Planetarium
  • IMAX Cinema
  • Glasgow Tower, which is 127 metres/417 feet high and can rotate 360° into the prevailing wind. This was re-opened to the public in March 2017, allowing visitors to ride the lift to the viewing platform and avail of the spectacular vista of Glasgow and environs below.
