Kuwait Scientific Centre is a place you should not miss to visit when you are in Kuwait. It has one of the biggest aquariums in the Middle East and also the discovery centre and the IMAX theater showing mostly 3D films.

I like everything about it. The fish, the penguins, the sharks, the snakes, the owl... And also you can watch 3D scientific videos. And at night, when the heat is gone you can grab a cup of coffee and walk by the sea.
