Fodor's Review

Families with children love this museum, which has a fun-packed interactive Science Mall, an IMAX theater, and the futuristic Glasgow Tower. The 417-foot spire—with an aerodynamic profile that twists 360 degrees—is a marvel. In the three-level Science Mall, state-of-the-art displays educate kids and adults about exploration, discovery, and the environment. The ScottishPower Planetarium has a fantastic Zeiss Starmaster projector, which allows you to gaze at the glittering

stars. Set aside half a day to see everything. The museum's setting, on the banks of the Clyde, sets it off beautifully.
