Our Local Weather

Our garden receives typical Glasgow weather, from ‘driech’ to ‘taps aff’. Our exposed location on the banks of the river Clyde make weather particularly noticeable.

Discover how weather is driven by the Sun and what changes to our atmosphere mean for our planet.

Coming Soon

Check back soon for further information about our new experiences.

Until then, join students from Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics as they share their knowledge of rainbows.


Glasgow Science Centre gratefully acknowledges the support of NatureScot for our wetlands interpretation project.
