Group celebrating birthday party at Glasgow science centre

Birthday Parties

We're sorry, we are not currently operating birthday parties due to COVID-19.

It’s your birthday? Well let’s party like it’s your birthday! And now we've got even more to offer the birthday boy or girl, with new programmes, age-related activities and new menus. But of course we're keeping the best bits, like free admission for the parents of the host, your very own birthday party organiser hand-picked from our talented pool of staff, loads of discounted parking and a fab goody bag. All you have to do is bring the cake!


A choice of Bubble-ology, Dino Dig, Cast a Fossil or Total Rampage. Whichever you choose, your guests will enjoy 30-45 minutes of fun, take home a souvenir and perhaps a wee bit of scientific knowledge too! (Our activities are age specific, so just chat to us about the age group when you book.)


Book an amazing tour of the Universe, led by an expert Sky Pilot from our planetarium team. Our new fulldome digital planetarium lets you explore the skies like never before – take our word for it, it’s pretty awesome!


We're offering three timeslots a day, subject to availability at the time of booking. Birthday parties will start at 10:30, 11:45 and 13:00. There's no finish time, so you can stay and play until closing time if you want (or until the partiers are pooped!)


You want more? Well, your ticket means that you can join the other visitors and take in a scheduled science show to add to the fun and learning, if you can fit it in!


Bookings are open now – call us on 0141 420 5000 to check availability and to make a reservation. 


  • Birthday parties cost £13.50 per child
  • Two adult Science Mall tickets are provided free per party and accompanying adults can attend the party for £4 each
  • Planetarium shows cost an extra £3.00 per person for all attending
  • If the Birthday Party is for a Science Passport holder, we're pleased to offer a 10% discount for the Birthday Party children
