The Glasgow Science Centre

This is the name given to the Millennium Commission Lottery-funded project that lies on the southern bank of the River Clyde, on the site of the 1988 Garden Festival. The Centre comprises Scotland's first Imax Cinema, a 122m (400 feet) fully rotating tower with viewing platform and a four storey, titanium clad Science Mall, which includes a range of interactive displays and exhibitions. The centre was opened by HM Queen Elizabeth in July 2001.

Opposite lies the futuristic Clyde Auditorium and Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.
