18th March 2020

The decision has been made in the interests of the health and wellbeing of our staff and visitors to temporarily close Aberdeen Science from 5pm on Wednesday 18th March to help contain the spread of COVID-19.  All events and programmes during this period are being cancelled and we will contact all bookings individually.


This is a preventative measure only; we are not aware of any specific risk to our visitors or staff in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our future approach will be in line with official advice from the Government and Health Protection Scotland. 

For updates, including information on when we are re-opening please subscribe to our newsletter  


Thank you for your understanding in these exceptional circumstances and we look forward to welcoming you back to Aberdeen Science Centre soon.
