Glasgow Science Centre#13 in Best Things To Do in Glasgow
If you have small kids in tow, consider a trip to the Glasgow Science Centre. However, this museum wasn't a favorite of teenagers or adults. The high price of admission was the other gripe recent tourists had with the centre. Yes, you can spend half a day at the Glasgow Science Centre, but you'll need to do just that to get your money's worth.
Among noted exhibits are the twirling Glasgow Tower, the three-level Science Mall, the ScottishPower Planetarium and the IMAX Theatre. Open daily, you can check the website for specific hours and admission prices.
- Families with children love this museum, which has a fun-packed Science Mall, an IMAX theater, and the futuristic Glasgow Tower. … Set aside half a day to see everything." -- Fodor's
- The 417 ft. Glasgow Tower is the only building in the world that rotates 360° from the ground up. Climb the 523 steps to the top or follow the crowd to the lift. Offering the very best views of Glasgow, the building is a cone whose weight rests on a base of just a few centimeters." -- Let's Go Scotland

#1 The Burrell Collection
Travelers express astonishment at this museum's near pitch-perfection. The Burrell Collection's glass walls not only encase a variety of objects and artworks, but they also usher in the surrounding woodlands. In the collection, donated by the late millionaire Sir William Burrell, you'll find everything from Chinese ceramics to Rodin sculptures. And once you're done with the art, you can wander about the surrounding Pollok Country Park.
Open daily, the Burrell Collection can be viewed for free. And travelers highly recommend you take advantage of this steal, saying the museum's variety of art and its milieu are beyond compare.
