The Big Explorer

If you are lucky enough to be accompanied by an under 7, the Big Explorer area is a must see.

There’s lots of work to be done to keep our busy cargo ship sailing in calm waters. It’s all hands on deck! Operate the crane and load the cargo, man the Captain’s bridge, have a splish splash in Water Ways. Then have a nosy in the crates to see what’s inside.

Plus, there’s a soft play area for children under 18 months so they can join in the fun too. Little ones can also put on a puppet show under the sea, play with the train table and have musical fun with our musical shark and walk on piano. Who would have thought there'd be so many things on in Glasgow for teeny tiny people?
