Sci­ence Cen­tre reaches for the five stars

Evening Times - - NEWS -

GLAS­GOW Sci­ence Cen­tre is cel­e­brat­ing af­ter keep­ing its stars – and not just in the plan­e­tar­ium.

The at­trac­tion has been awarded a five-star grad­ing from VisitS­cot­land again.

Five star rat­ings are al­lo­cated to at­trac­tions said to of­fer an ‘ex­cep­tional’ stan­dard for vis­i­tors. The cen­tre was ranked on core ex­pe­ri­ence, the ef­fi­ciency of its staff, clean­li­ness and cafes.

The cen­tre, home to 300 in­no­va­tive hands-on ex­hibits in the Sci­ence Mall, a full dome dig­i­tal plan­e­tar­ium, Glas­gow Tower and a Cineworld IMAX, was pleased to re­tain its stars, a spokesman said.

Dr Stephen Bres­lin, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Glas­gow Sci­ence Cen­tre said: “I am de­lighted that we have main­tained our world class, five star grad­ing and con­tin- ue to be one of the top at­trac­tions in Glas­gow, and in­deed Scot­land. Vis­i­tors are in­creas­ingly look­ing for an ex­pe­ri­ence that goes above and beyond their ex­pec­ta­tions and I be­lieve we more than achieve this.

“This is a tremen­dous ac­com­plish­ment and I would like to thank all our staff for go­ing that ex­tra mile to ce­ment our rep­u­ta­tion as a qual­ity des­ti­na­tion.

Liz Buchanan, re­gional part­ner­ships di­rec­tor at VisitS­cot­land, said: “A huge well done to ev­ery­one at Glas­gow Sci­ence Cen­tre on re­tain­ing its five-star sta­tus. The award is a tes­ta­ment to the hard work by the team to de­liver a unique and out­stand­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”

More than 320,000 peo­ple vis­ited Glas­gow Sci­ence Cen­tre in the last fi­nan­cial year.
