The place is so clean. A real stress reliever. I walk there everyday since more than 12 years. The cinema is nice, the movies are interesting. They recently opened an apple bees branch.

Wonderful place to be their with children. Acquarium and the discovery centre are worth visiting and to add to the beauty is the waterfront. Enjoy the sea breeze, the heritage boat with a scenic view of Kuwait.

There is something for every age here - we had a 7 year old - 2 parents - 2 grandparents - we all had a great time. The hands-on exhibits were the most fun. We really enjoyed working around outside as well as inside. The ship outside is amazing. There is a maritime museum next door but we didn't get... More

I always enjoy the visit to the Scientific Center. The visit to the aquarium is very relaxing even if it's not that big. The outdoor is amazing and an excellent view. You can enjoy a nice cup of coffee and the sunset...

Great view of the beach and open space to sit. One worthwhile place to visit and spend a day especially with the family. Proximity to the mall is an advantage for lunch and evening snacks with plenty of choices. Great choices of restaurants, easy access from the road, plenty and well organised parking space. Very neat and clean.
