Aberdeen Science Centre

Aberdeen Science Centre, Satrosphere, is Scotland's first science centre. Originally opened in 1989, we have been engaging people with science for 26 years. Using interactive, hands-on exhibits and live science shows we engage our visitors with science to help them discover more about the world and the science of how things work. A visit to Aberdeen Science Centre will not only inspire the scientist within but will entertain the whole family.
