Children's Parties

Current Restrictions 

*At present we are unable to offer Birthday Parties, we are operating at a reduced capacity in the Centre in line with current restrictions to keep everyone as safe as possible.* 

You are more than welcome to book the standard admission tickets and come and experience the brand-new exhibitions and we can set aside an area in Café Create for you to have your birthday Cake! We hope that we will be able to bring birthday parties back to the centre soon!

Party Themes

Choose your theme, bring cake and candles – and we’ll take care of the rest!

Come to Dundee Science Centre for a party like no other – with a great choice of changing themes and your very own Partyologist to make that very special day all the more memorable. Parties include time to explore our hands-on exhibition, a themed workshop, a selection of party food and party bags too!

How To Book

Call us on 01382 228800 to check availability, reserve your spot and give your child the party they want!

Deposit is required to confirm party.

Party times are set for 1.5 hours of sheer fun, for a minimum of 10 children aged 3 to 11.

Party attendance also acts as a normal day ticket to the centre so all guests are able to explore the centre, even after the party - only until closing time that is.

Party Invites!

Note: All workshops involve hands-on activities therefore adults attending the parties must be prepared to assist children as required. A minimum of two adults per party is required. Adults attend for free.
