The Dana Centre on Queen's Gate, South Kensington, London is part of the Science Museum (London).

Designed by Sir Richard MacCormac of MJP Architects,[1] The Dana Centre, opened in 2003, is a public event venue in London for contemporary science debate, run largely by the Science Museum. The building itself houses a cafe bar, which is open during the day and doubles up as the event venue, a free internet cafe (free wireless Internet access is also available in the building), and offices used by the Science Museum and the British Association for the Advancement of Science.

Unlike the main Science Museum, the Dana Centre is aimed at an entirely adult audience. The Dana Centre is not directly accessible from the main museum, and is situated on the nearby Queen's Gate street.
