Glasgow Science Centre
Voted one of Britain’s Most Popular Places to visit and Europe’s Best Science Centre, the Glasgow Science Centre was opened in 2001 and is located on the south bank of the River Clyde. It is compromised of three buildings, which are the Glasgow Tower, the Science Mall and the first IMAX Cinema that was built in Scotland.
Whilst the Science Mall’s design resembles the canted hall of a ship, it houses three floors of learning exhibits. These are themed around concepts of ‘explore and discover’, ‘science in action’ and ‘science and you’ and are designed to encourage interaction and on-going learning. It also holds the Glasgow Science Centre Planetarium, which projects images of the night sky through a projector.
