Sound Exhibits

Make a noise with the various percussion instruments in our garden. These acoustic experiences allow you to produce sound from different materials from metal to granite rock.

Explore how vibrations create sound and discover the relationship between the size of an instrument and the pitch of the sound it creates.

Explore Sound

Join CJ as he explores how sounds are made, with the help of the sound exhibits at Glasgow Science Centre's Outer Space.

More sound experiments...

Learn with Celine about how sound travels, how we get different pitches and make your own straw oboe.
