Visit aberdeen science centre
Aberdeen Science Centre is open and we can’t wait to see you!
The centre is open Monday – Sunday, from 10am – 4.30pm and to avoid disappointment, we recommend pre-booking your tickets in advance (this includes STEM Passport holders). You can purchase tickets for either the morning (10 am – 1pm) or afternoon (1pm – 4pm) and will have a three-hour slot available – this is plenty of time to explore the centre. If you’d like to purchase a STEM Passport, no pre-booking is required. You can fill the application and purchase the passport at our reception.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
