Children get to learn a lot and also get a first hand experience of the joy of seeing fishes of all types all in one place. A dream world not only for children but for adults as well. A very relaxing experience.

This Scientific Centre encompases a wonerful aquarium which is more of a small Museum of Natural History, with additionally an IMAX theatre, fast food, souvenier shop and replicas of several traditional boats, including full sized Dhow. Well worth few hours if in the area.
