Science Passport FAQ's

Glasgow Science Centre would like to extend our thanks to our Science Passport holders for their continued support. Your commitment helps us to deliver our charitable mission and your messages of support throughout our closure have meant so much to us.  We are looking forward to welcoming you back!


Below are answers to some of the most common questions about visiting with your Science Passport. If you have any questions not covered here please contact our Sales and Membership Team at at

When will Glasgow Science Centre reopen?

Glasgow Science Centre reopened on 25 June. We are currently open at weekends and local school holidays only.  

Visits will need to be booked in advance online or over the phone. 

You can find more information on our reopening here .

Are you extending Science Passports?

Yes, we are extending all passports to cover both periods that Glasgow Science Centre has been closed, 20/3/2020 - 3/10/2020 and 20/12/2020 until when we plan to reopen on 25/06/2021.

You should have received an email from us (around 4pm, 16 June) to confirm your new expiry date as we will not be sending out new cards. If you haven’t we may not have an up to date email address for you so please contact us  

I’m a Science Passport holder – do I need to pre-book?

Yes. We will be welcoming fewer visitors than normal, for this reason we are operating a time entry system and are asking all visitors including Science Passport holders to pre-book here.

If you would prefer to book over the phone please call us on 0141 420 5000. 

Passport holders can visit in any time slot of the day, or at 14.20 in our dedicated passport holders' arrival time slot. 

We expect there to be a high demand for tickets, therefore, please only book if you fully intend to make a visit. We only have a limited number of tickets available each day and want to welcome as many people as we can. 

If you are unable to attend due to government restrictions or if you have symptoms of Covid 19 please email to amend or cancel your booking. We would really appreciate if you can let us know as far in advance as possible so we can release tickets to others. Visits that are booked but then not taken up has a direct impact on our future sustainability. 

Can I renew my Science Passports?

For the moment we have decided to suspend all sales and renewals of Science Passports. We are reviewing the scheme to see how we can continue to offer the best experience while considering the restrictions and uncertainty imposed by the pandemic.
