Record year for science centre

22 Apr 2013

Glasgow Science Centre has had its busiest year since it opened in 2001.

The waterfront attraction bucked nationwide trends to see more than 270,000 people go through its doors during the last financial year, a rise of 7%.

Glasgow Science Centre also reported numbers up 10% in the summer of 2012 - July and August - when nearly three-quarters of competitors were seeing a decline.

Chief Executive Dr Stephen Breslin, who took the lead at the centre a year ago, said: "This boost in visitor numbers is a great recognition of all the hard work that we have undertaken in the last 12 months at the centre.

"It has been an extremely positive year for us and we are proud of what we have accomplished.

"We are now focusing on the year ahead and building on our successes."
