Opening Times & Admissions

Here at Dundee Science Centre, we are approaching an exciting time in our history.  We have successfully raised funding to enable a £2 Million upgrade to our facilities, including a brand new educational suite and interactive exhibition.

Please be patient with us while we prepare for construction to begin. We are expecting construction works to commence onsite on 21st August 2017 and we hope to have the facilities open by the start of April 2018. We aim to keep disruption to as minimal as possible during this period. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Check out our ‘What’s On’ section to find out more about our schedule of upcoming shows, exhibitions and activities. You may also contact us on 01382 228800 if you have any questions regarding your visit.

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.
