Activities for 11 year old

Hi, we are going to be spending most of next week in Glasgow. The rest of us have given our ideas of what we want to do, but my 11 year old son doesn't really know what he wants. Any ideas for activities?

Thanks, G.

    Does he like museums? Free entry into the Riverside Museum down by the Clyde which is a transport museum and right beside it is the Tall Ship which is also free entry. Kelvingrove museum in the Westend is also free.

    Xscape - indoor paid activities like skiing, there are other things there like 9 hole golf, cinema. Shopping centre Braehead is nearby.

    Science Centre down by the Clyde, IMAX is next door and also a tower you can go up (if it's working).

    Lots of good parks - Strathclyde Park you can hire bikes and cycle round it, Pollock Park and the Burrell Collection.

    National Trust for Scotland has a few sites around Glasgow.

    Lego exhibition at Paisley Museum, it's about £4 entry.

    I'm sure there's loads I've missed out.
