  • Our guide book recommended it and so we tried it. My husband liked it more than I did and I guess it's very clever just not my thing. It's very different.  more »

  • Very stimulating and fascinating exhibition. You won't quite see anything like it. You will struggle to pick out your favourite machine out of the lot.
  • Traveling show.. Kinetics & lighting all done to music. 🎶🎵🎵..A wonderful experience
  • Incredible! Please note it isn't easy getting in touch with them to reserve seats, if it is a weekday just arrive a half hour early. So worth it!
  • It's an interesting place to go to and an relaxing appearance
  • Fascinating and quirky place, well worth a visit.

Where to stay in Glasgow

Glasgow's revitalized city center offers outstanding accommodations--along with some of the finest shopping outside London. Considered one of the finest Victorian cities in Britain, Glasgow is renowned for its centrally located hotels. Spacious rooms overlook the historical city center, and award-winning restaurants and trendy cafes occupy the lower levels. Farther away from the central areas, which are often noisy and crowded with tourists, is a world of small B&Bs and guesthouses. These considerably cheaper options offer quality lodging in quiet neighborhoods less frequented by weekend revelers and rowdy nightlife lovers.
