Santa juggling gifts

Festive Science

The week before Christmas, Glasgow Science Centre invites you to join us in getting into the festive science spirit. In these special family friendly sessions, a short Festive Science Show, short Festive Planetarium Show or A Beautiful Planet 3D Film in our IMAX Cinema will be included in the cost of entry.

  • Science Show - With exhilarating demonstrations and plenty of festive cheer, this is one show you won't want to miss.

  • Planetarium Show - Using the stars as our guide, we will follow Santa around the world as he delivers Christmas gifts. Help him find his way back to the North Pole using the North Star.

  • IMAX Film A Beautiful Planet 3D - A breathtaking portrait of Earth from space, providing a unique perspective and increased understanding of our planet and galaxy as never seen before.

Please be aware each arrival time has a set show time shown on the booking page.

Plus, there's an indoor Christmas Market each day of Festive Science provided by Urban Markets and the chance to pick up some great gifts for loved ones or a treat for yourself.
