Welcome back

Glasgow Science Centre

As COVID-19 restrictions are slowly being lifted the whole team at Glasgow Science Centre are beyond excited to be able to welcome you back to visit from Friday 25 June – just in time for the school summer holidays!  This date is subject to change but we really hope this will be the day.

We remain temporarily closed as we are making some major changes to the outdoor space around Glasgow Science Centre and refurbishing our atrium to make your arrival more welcoming, accessible and interactive. There is also going to be a new exhibition to look forward to - Explore!

We understand the wait to get back to the science centre has been long, and we are really looking forward having you back to experience a new improved Glasgow Science Centre safely.
