Additional useful information

  • If you'd like to use Tesco Clubcard Days Out vouchers, we accept them as payment for Science Mall and Planetarium tickets only. You can't use them for the IMAX or to buy Science Passports.
  • You can get special rates and discounted admission if you bring a group of 10 or more, a school, uniform or community group. However, this needs to be booked in advance, so the best thing to do is call us on 0141-420-5000 and we can go through the details with you.
  • There's a restaurant serving tasty family favourites and some pretty delicious home baking, plus plenty of seating.
  • We're recognised as a 'breastfeeding friendly' venue by Greater Glasgow and the Clyde NHS.
