This is one of the best place to relax, enjoy with children, see IMAX movies on environmental issues, witness sunset against the Kuwait city skyline. There are many many learning options for toddlers, kids and young people which make this place as one of the most sought after weekend visiting options

A bit run down and very outdated but an okay visit with the kids if you're bored. The Discovery Centre had an excellent and super fun exhibition on robots but that is done and has been replaced by the vastly inferior plant exhibition where much of it has been mistreated and broken by other children previously visiting.

Scientific Center is a great place for a visit, either for the indoor play area, the aquarium or just for a walk around the site. Calm, clean, smart and attractive, well worth a visit.
