Reasons for trip

Had a very enjoyable visit here with our grandson. The centre has three floors of exhibits, virtually all being interactive (so good for keeping the young ones involved). Floor 3 is the ‘bodyworks’ floor – explaining the working of the human body (and only one exhibit that grandson thought ‘rude); floor two was more ‘mind and mechanical’ with the mind works and ‘lab’ exhibits where we had a bit of competitive fun with mindball; floor one includes the planetarium (additional charge – book your time at reception) where we had a well presented and interesting look at the sky at night (with and without the normal Glasgow light pollution!), and also the science show theatre (this one being included in the normal entrance fee). There’s a large area here dedicated to the under-7’s, so they’re not left out. There were a number of school visits during out day there and you can see why – it’s a very good learning experience and one that gets the youngsters involved, together. The cafe had a fairly limited menu for our lunchtime meal, but the quality was very good. Paddle-steamer Waverley was berthed alongside, bringing back memories of childhood trips ‘doon the water’ to Dunoon for summer holidays at Aunt’n’Uncle’s house. Price when we visited was £8.50 for seniors and for children – £10.50 for normal adult entry. Being a charity they’re happy not only to have us visit, but also have openings for volunteer workers, and for business associates. There’s an IMAX cinema and Starbucks alongside which can be accessed without entering the paid-area, as can the science centre shop and the Glasgow Tower. The tower was, unfortunately, out of commission for our visit – but is expected to be in action for visitors from July 2014. A good reason (were one needed) for a return visit!
