Aberdeen Science Centre

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.
