Dundee Science Centre (formerly known as Sensation) is a science centre located in Dundee, Scotland, and a part of the Scottish Science Centres Network. It is a registered non-profit organisation that is funded by the public and donations from local corporate sponsors.

The interactive exhibits focus mainly on the life sciences, and in particular on the senses. There is also a focus on robotics, and a practical exploration of science learning. Daily shows include: Keyhole Surgery, Science on the Spot, MindBall, Looking for Life Planetarium show and Solar System show.

Dundee Science Centre is also a corporate venue and a HMIE-inspected resource for science learning and public engagement. The centre hosts school groups, uniformed groups and also birthday parties.

There is an in-house cafe (Infusion) and a gift shop, stocking many science and educational products.

As one of the Millennium Commission projects, it opened in July 2000 at the cost of around £5 million.[1]
