A special pop-up exhibition will go on show in Aberdeen’s Bon Accord Centre tomorrow.
It opens to whet appetites ahead of the autumn relaunch of the Aberdeen Science Centre following an extensive redevelopment.
The exhibition will show-off some of the centre’s most iconic exhibits and take visitors back to 1988, when it first opened its doors as Satrosphere and was Scotland’s first science centre.
Craig Stevenson, centre manager at Bon Accord said: “We are delighted to welcome Aberdeen Science Centre for their pop-up exhibition.
“It is great to play host to such an engaging and educational pop up.
“We are always looking to add something new to the customer experience and make visitors smile and this certainly fits the bill.”
The science centre will return to the Tramsheds on Constitution Street later this year after spending two years in a temporary base on George Street.
The redevelopment work has included an extension and the creation of a new mezzanine floor – almost doubling the exhibition space and exposing the roof structure to allow natural light to flood into the building and create a bright, airy, modern interior.
Bryan Snelling, chief executive at Aberdeen Science Centre, added: “The renovation of the centre has been transformational.
“We’re very excited that we can give visitors to the Bon Accord a chance to see and enjoy some of the memorable exhibits of the past before we welcome them to our superb new centre with its 60 all-new interactive exhibits.”
