Most of the taxi drivers know where this place is located. The different activities are fun inside. The outside of the property is very clean inside is clean as well. Overall you will be happy you took time to visit.

Lots to see and experience at the Scientific Centre. It is well worth a visit, and is open until quite late.

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.

We went to the aquarium and we really enjoyed it. after finishing you could have a walk near the sea it's few meters away or watch a movie if you like. A good place to visit.
