  • We have visited here with the kids on several occasions and it's a place we'll never tire of. The kids always have an absolute ball whilst all learning something at the same time :) Always cheery and ...  more »

  • This was our first visit and I was pleasantly surprised. We ate in the cafe to start and found the rolls to be very tasty and the soup good. The centre itself is decent, a few of the monitors appeared...  more »

  • Great day. Initially unsure whether this would have much to interest a 2 year old but I was clearly very wrong. Used to be called Sensation for good reason. This is a great place to stimulate all the senses and learn as you go.. great live demonstrations and good access for buggies and chairs with lifts to all floors. With Dundee now being a centre of excellence for all things scientific and electronic this is a fab place to sow the seeds in future young minds!!!
  • The kids were not very interested here, we have visited other science centers but dundee was small and the experiments etc were not good. We only spent an hour or so there, which included one of the live shows. The presenter was quite good though, but it was mostly for younger children.
  • It's got brilliant attractions but the issue I have is it's rather small. Couldn't really spend more than a couple of hours here. Great fun for the kids while they are there.
  • 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".
  • Very good place for the kids and adults. Entertaining.

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.
