A lot smaller than Glasgow and even Dundee, but it's nice and a good thing to have in Aberdeen. We had my son's birthday party here a couple of years ago and it was well done, something a bit different and well structured.

Fair enough for a wee day out, entertaining especially for kids - but not much for adults. You'll be spoiled if you've been to the Glasgow or London Science museums. Shows were nice, though, and staff where very nice.More

It was a bit small, but my children, 9 and 11, were easily entertained for a couple of hours. They truly loved the iSandbox, and we all enjoyed the planetarium.
