Cambridge Science Centre, initially located on Jesus Lane in Cambridge, England, is the city's first interactive science museum.

The start-up exhibition space was opened by the Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge University, Leszek Borysiewicz, on 7 February 2013, the museum was opened to the public on 8 February 2013. Its first exhibition dealt with the electromagnetic spectrum and principles of sound and hearing. Its target audience is families and schools, particularly children between 7 and 14 years old.

The venture was founded by Dr. Chris Lennard and Dr. Katia Smith-Litiere, backed by technology entrepreneurs, including chairman David Cleevely, Hermann Hauser and Jonathan Milner.

In December 2016, the exhibition space was closed for relocation. While they were relocating, Cambridge Science Centre put on a series of pop up science events known as 'Street Science'.
