Looking for amazing school trips in Scotland? Whether you choose to make a day of it and come to see us, or opt for a visit from our 'On Tour' team, you can expect a great range of benefits and guaranteed standards.


Glasgow Science Centre really is a blast – no wonder it’s one of Scotland’s favourite visitor attractions. There’s a bunch of stuff to see and do here – there’s hundreds of interactive exhibits in the Science Mall, a Planetarium, Scotland’s biggest-screen IMAX cinema, a Science Show Theatre, a fantastic cafe and a shop filled with goodies. If you’re out of puff reading about it, just imagine being here!  


The Space Zone forms an immersive walkway through the solar system towards the entrance of the Planetarium. Observe the planets under a different light and learn fascinating facts about our cosmic neighbourhood. Discover how to spot some of the most recognisable stars and patterns in the night sky without the need for binoculars or a telescope. Experience what it's like working in space and be sure to grab the perfect photo opportunity viewing Scotland from the Cupola — a window into space — just as though you were on board the International Space Station.


At GSC we have structured learning sessions that are carefully aligned with the CfE and National Qualification Stages.

  • All education activities are carefully designed to link with and support the Curriculum for Excellence and National Qualification Stages
  • Our overall offer has been approved by HMIe
  • We take safety seriously — all activities are risk-assessed. See the Glasgow Science Centre Health and Safety Risk Assessment Statement.
  • Take a look at our Make the most of your visit document for a handy helpful guide!
  • Easy logistics — if you're coming to us teachers can pre-arrange coach pick up and drop off right in front of the Centre, with the luxury of a nearby free coach park. We simply turn up on your doorstep when we come to you.
  • Fantastic Science Communicators — trained to inspire everyone with the wonders of science
  • Experience of working with school groups — self-contained kit and fast and effective set up if we visit you; space to assemble, storage areas, arrangements for lunch as a group when you come to see us; all designed to make the visit easier for you.

School visits in Scotland just got cooler!
