  • Visited the Science Centre with our two grandchildren aged 6 and 10 Very disappointed with what was on offer. We were in and out in 45 minutes. Some activities were broken and had never been replaced ...  more »
  • This is a nice play for younger kids 3-8 years old but a lot of the exhibits are looking a little tired. The staff do their best and the cafe is nice enough just not enough to do for more than 45 minu...  more »
  • We took our 3 kids (5, 9 & 11) who enjoyed their time there but underwhelming when compared to science centres in Dundee and Glasgow. Seemed to lack overall theme and some wallboards were partially ob...  more »

  • Had a brilliant time here with my wee boy and his Grandpa. Loads to do for even preschoolers. We all enjoyed it and look forward to going again. Parking round the back, a lovely interactive garden, cafe, free storytime and timed shows, and loads to do in the main hall to get little minds going.
  • Very disappointed with this science centre. It was like a school hall with some science stalls rather than a science centre. Dundee is much better and Glasgow centre much better than both but Dundee is due a refit soon. Surprised this place is so bad given the local companies and universities. More interesting stuff at offshore Europe show in the next month.
  • Kids loved it (first time we visited). Disappointed to find nothing really had changed in the year that passed between first and second trips. Consequently, kids began to get bored fairly soon. Saying that, kids will have a blast first time visiting. Cafe has reasonible coffee.
  • Brilliant kids loved it seemed small but the kids were there for hours really worth the money
  • Lots of interesting things for the kids to do.
