Science Centre reaches for the five stars
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.
