Satrosphere is Scotland’s first science centre. Originally opened in 1989 we have been engaging people with science for over 21 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 Satrosphere will not only inspire the scientist within but will entertain the whole family.
If you need a break during your visit you can relax and unwind in our Tramsheds Coffee House situated within the centre. We offer a range of light lunches, delicious home baked goods and we proudly serve Starbucks coffee. With comfortable sofas, free Wi Fi facilities and a selection of newspapers and science magazines, the coffee house provides the perfect place for taking it easy. While you are here, make sure you visit Satrosphere’s Science Shop. You’ll find a fantastic range of educational posters, science kits, models, gifts and books. From small pocket money items to science-themed books and posters, we stock a wide range of unusual items.
With free parking and close proximity to Aberdeen’s Fun Beach and many other attractions, a visit to Satrosphere is not to be missed.
Satrosphere Science Centre is one of four science centres within Scotland with the others being Dundee Science Centre, Our Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh and Glasgow Science Centre.
Satrosphere aims to inspire the scientists of tomorrow and to spark renewed interest in university science courses, currently in decline.
