Group Visits

Glasgow Science Centre is committed to ensuring a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience for all. Visitor feedback on our enhanced safety measures has been well received and will continue to be in place so that everyone can explore and discover science while continuing to feel safe and comfortable when they visit. 

In normal circumstances Glasgow Science Centre is delighted to welcome uniformed, out of school and community groups throughout the year, we even offer special discounted rates. Unfortunately, due to capacity restrictions and to support the overall maintenance of social distancing we are limiting our group bookings for now, as follows.

Out of school and uniformed groups

At this current time, we can accept bookings for groups of no more than 80 people including children. You must ensure that there is at least 1 adult per 5 children and go around GSC in small groups not as one large group.

Community and CLD organisations

If you work with families in the community and are looking to arrange visits where families visit Glasgow Science Centre individually on the same day please contact us to discuss. Please be aware that even in these circumstances we can only allow you to book for a maximum of 40 people in one day and we can only accept one booking from an organisation in a day.

To enquire about visiting or to book for a group please call us on 0141 420 5000. Phone lines are open 0930 – 1600 daily (closed 1215 – 1300 for lunch). Please be aware pre-booking for all visitors is essential and we have a limited group capacity each day so early booking is recommended.
