Opening times/admissions

Opening Times & Admissions

We  have some construction work on-going within Dundee Science Centre due to the creation of our exciting new science learning suite and interactive Medical Marvels exhibition. There is therefore some construction noise within the centre and our first-floor facilities are not accessible.  Please feel free to call us on 01382 228800 ahead of your planned visit and we can advise you further at that time.  

We’re looking forward to doubling the size of our 1st floor level through our major development project that has been made possible after a successful fundraising campaign. We have now dismantled our previous 1st floor exhibition space and have identified which popular 1st floor exhibits we can retain for inclusion in our ground floor, which is a larger area of the centre. While we have relocated some of these exhibits already, there are exhibits that have unfortunately not been possible to relocate at this stage because of the construction programme and because of the extra staff-led activities that we have added to the ground floor while the 1st floor is closed. The older exhibits are sadly at the end of their lives and will not be relocated to the ground floor. If you would like to find out whether your favourite exhibit is available during this period, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01382 228800 or

Dundee Science Centre is open 7 days a week, 10am - 5pm.

We recommend you allow 2-3 hours to enjoy your visit.

Places are limited to 10 tickets per day, therefore booking in advance is essential to ensure entry.

Access for all

Dundee Science Centre facilities and displays have been designed with ease of disability access in mind.
There are designated parking spaces close to the building, which has a level entrance and a lift to the first floor display area. Adapted toilets are available to visitors and a wheelchair is also available for loan at no charge. We also have full baby changing facilities. Concession rates are offered and carers are admitted free.

Gift Aid

Our visitors can choose to pay an additional 10% on the Day Pass admission to participate in Gift Aid. This turns the whole ticket amount into a charitable donation which enables Dundee Science Centre to claim back tax at 25p for every pound you spend. As a thank you, we will give you 15% of your admission back to spend in our coffee shop.
Your Gift Aid donation will help Dundee Science Centre, a registered charity, develop learning programmes and community events, and promote a culture of public engagement with science.

Tesco vouchers

We accept Tesco vouchers for standard admissions only.

Tesco vouchers cannot be used for special events and/or shows, group bookings or Annual Passes. Tesco vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer, scheme or promotion.
