Aberdeen Science Centre

Toggle location map

Aberdeen Science Centre has a transformational new look following a £6million refurbishment in 2020.

Over 60 new interactive exhibits await visitors, including The OPITO Theatre of Energy - the UK's first immersive experience of its kind - and RoboThespian, a chatty humanoid robot sponsored by the centre's Digital Futures Partner, Equinor.

Aberdeen Science Centre has something for all ages and is split into six new zones: Energy; Space; Life Sciences; Test it; Make it; and a special area for under-6s, as well as the Shell Learning Zone, where science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are brought to life.

A day out for the whole family, one not to be missed.
