Another visit with family and kids. Beautiful location along the Arabian Gulf Street. Ample parking and squeaky clean. Great jogging track. Umpteen Starbucks outlets. The experience of walking around the place and a visit to the aquarium was worth the money spent. A lot more can be done am sure but for now not disappointed. It needn't be a "must... More

As for the Otters, we have been working hard over the past year to secure a number of new Otters for display, but our efforts are not successful... More

I live and work in Kuwait and it's difficult to imagine anything "scientific" in a country that routinely arrests people for being in possession of "witchcraft tools".
