Floor One is a fantastic space with over 80 interactive exhibits for guests to have fun with, whilst taking in the stunning panoramic views of the River Clyde. A popular space for drinks receptions, Floor One provides the ultimate backdrop! 

Your guests can sip science themed cocktails on arrival while interacting with our Question of Perception exhibits. An interactive illusion with parlour tricks exploring the science of how we use our brains can entertain your guests. Your whole universe will be tilted in our Wacky Salon which is guaranteed to be the talking point of any event. Visual illusions, physical challenges and mind-bending puzzles to engage the brain. Every exhibit will be sure to make your guests rethink how to experience the world.
