What to do with two boys?

Staying at the Menzies in Glasgow next Thursday for the night have two boys aged 13 and 3 years. Open to suggestions of what we can do with them. Already done peoples palace, Scotland Street School, Kelvingrove Art Gallery. Haven't done Transport Museum for a couple of years youngest wouldn't remember that.

Any ideas?

Also any pubs have live brass/jazz music in the evening?

The Transport Museum shut it's doors this spring ahead of the new one opening next year (I think). What about the science museum. They might enjoy the hands-on aspect of it, though I haven't been myself.

I would also suggest the Science Centre. If you are more active how about a trip to Xscape for a skiing or snowboarding lessons? Or just good old sledging?! It also has crazy golf / bowling / cinema / football school / rockclimbing etc http://www.xscape.co.uk/braehead

Or for a cheaper alternative - a walk around the Catherdral / Necorpolis area would nice. Also Glasgow Green is a good place soo - can visit the peoples palace, their a fantastic park for the younger one and the West Brewery usual has some kind of entertainment for children and adults on a Sunday afternoon.

You could try one of the Treasure Trails available in Glasgow. I think there are 3 different ones available at the Tourist Info Centre in George Square. The oldest would enjoy solving the clues, while the youngest would enjoy helping I'm sure!
