Science centres which have a considerable importance and functions in developed countries are intended to be popularized in Turkey. At this point considering the fact that the first contact between science centres and visitors is usually provided with websites, it is quite important that the content of these websites should be designed and developed to meet the needs of the visitors. From this point of view, the aim of this study is to examine the websites of the science centres in Turkey and to reveal at what level they meet the needs of the visitors. The research study was carried out via descriptive survey method and between September 14 and September 18, 2015 the key word "science centre" was searched on Google. Out of the science centres found, twelve science centres were included in the study. During the process of analysis of the documents obtained, two researchers examined every single data on the website separately and then they combined and tabulated them. Within this context, four main titles were obtained: a) information and news b) activities and the documents, c) Visuals, and d) Contact, Appointment, and Booking. At the end of the study, it was determined that under some circumstances the websites of the science centres were useful, where as they were inadequate under some conditions.
