  • Small car park with tight spaces but a couple of disabled bays available. Wheelchair access good throughout, including lift to upper floor. Staff presenting shows are knowledgeable, fun, and engaging. Prices a little rich for the amount of exhibits. Some exhibits not working properly, especially anything with a touch screen. Food prices average, but choice poor, with only vegan choices being baked potato or panini, both with no fillings. There is a lot of cheese in the food in the fridge, and both soups had milk in them. Soy milk available for coffees. Plenty of kids having fun, so a good base to start with. A few tweaks needed to broaden its appeal and get "raving fans".
  • Really good educational day out probably most suited to children of primary school age although there are things for all ages.
  • An interesting place to visit, very hands on. Educational and fun. Not as big as the Glasgow science centre
  • Absolutely first class. The information in most the exhibits is delivered in a low tech method. This means that, particularly children, you have to interact to learn and not just told. The only real criticism is the gift shop, most of it is cheap rubbish.
  • Great place to take kids the staff are all great with lots of facts and shows .

Where to stay in Dundee

The city center of Dundee teems with hotels, from budget to high-end options. During the summer when university students are away, you can also stay in empty student accommodations. Contact the university directly if this is something that interests you. For a quieter holiday with a focus on the outdoors, consider staying in nearby Angus. Here you'll discover picturesque small towns and villages complete with charming bed and breakfasts.
