The temporary home of a science centre set to undergo a £4.7 million revamp will open next month.
Formerly known as Satrosphere, Aberdeen Science Centre will begin the redevelopment of its building.
The facility on Constitution Street is in line for a major refurbishment to bring it into the 21st Century.
Its current base will close a week on Sunday with its temporary location on George Street set to open on Monday November 19.
The science centre will stay at the George Street location until the redevelopment is finished in 2020.
Liz Hodge, chief executive of Aberdeen Science Centre, said: “We were delighted to secure a temporary central location on Aberdeen’s George Street, courtesy of the generosity of the team at Bon Accord Centre which owns the building.
“Our move to George Street is an exciting opportunity to bring STEM to the city centre.
“Every single member of our team has a passion to inspire a lifelong interest in science by creating engaging experiences and are all looking forward to welcoming our existing visitors as well as those who may not have visited us before.
“This is also a wonderful opportunity to work with local business in the city centre, to establish partnerships and collaborate to the benefit of all our customers and staff.
“Aberdeen Science Centre has proved to be a principal provider of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) engagement in north-east Scotland for 30 years.
“The centre is both well-known and loved by local communities in the city and Aberdeenshire, hosting frequent visits from education groups, nurseries, school groups and teachers.”

The centre welcomed 56,024 visitors in the 2017-18 season.
It is hoped the popular “pooping sheep” will be refurbished as part of the development programme – however, it will be moving to George Street temporarily.
In September the redevelopment of the centre was given the green light.
The plans include doubling the exhibition space and creating a new upper floor.
New exhibitions will also be added when the facility reopens in 2020.
