Get down to Glasgow Science Centre

by Emily

Are you north of the border with a bored brood on your hand? Well, we have a super science idea that's sure to entertain your troops.

This week we focus on one of Scotland's most vibrant educational places - the impressive Glasgow Science Museum located, unsurprisingly, in Glasgow. A good mix of learning, fun and interactivity makes this a must-visit for Scottish families.

Most of the activities in the museum are linked to the Curriculum for Excellence, which means that what your kids enjoy during their trip will reinforce what they've learned at school this year - or, better still, it will prepare them for what they're going to learn next year.

There's a full programme of activities throughout the year including live science shows - which are guaranteed to go with a bang! There are also interactive workshops on hand so that the kids can do their own experiments and experience science first-hand. Very little ones are catered for as well with early years activities. Do check ahead of your visit to see what's on when you're planning to go.

There is even an IMAX on site with a screen bigger than a five a side football pitch! A range of Hollywood blockbusters, including animated favourites like Under the Sea, are brought to you in amazing and massive 3D.

You can even book your child's party at the museum, which is a great idea for a any summer birthdays. Find out more at
