  • Traveled from Fife to bring my 4 year old to the science centre and was not disappointed. Although it isn’t the biggest of science centres, staff were all lovely and my daughter especially enjoyed the...  more »

  • Lots of fun for everyone. Kids loved the Mars Odyssey talk. Cafe reasonably priced as was the gift shop. Spent a good 3 hours in the centre but it's also good that you can leave and come back the same day. Would recommend this place. Just a pity there is no free parking.
  • The young staff with their entertaining, informative demonstrations were the best thing about our visit. Excellent - I hope they are going into teaching. Not every exhibit was accessible - height wise - so a few plastic steps would have helped. Friendly staff throughout.
  • Loads of interactive exhibitions which are really cool. Bendy mirrors, red and white curtain illusions and thermon. Great place to go on a rainy day in Dundee.
  • The staff here are very friendly, and enthusiastic, no complaints at all. But we used to go frequently, with so much to do for children under 5. But things for young kids have gradually been cut back more and more. We still visit as we have a annual pass, but wont renew this time. I do see some kids classes are run occasionally, but these are with additional cost.
  • Outstanding day out for all the family. Loads for the kids and adults. Great talks and friendly staff. Highly recommended.
