This is such a fab idea for children - not for parents! It is such a headache if you arrive and get told that there is a huge school party inside! It is a great concept, but in dubai where children have no idea on queuing and sharing things, it makes it difficult. It is very noisy, and when inside... More

I enjoyed seeing my kids act like they belong to a job and take it very seriously, they have tried many careers ranging from medicine to accounting to news anchors. Its a great way to find the child's passion from an early stage. Also they went to college and earned a degree and they have came to realise that their... More

Children "played" for almost an entire day. Brilliant simulation - great concept - if you go to their university for example, you get paid more per "career" etc. Kids absolutely loved it- have been back again after initial visit too - even more fun the next time. Would highly recommend. Excellent value (it is pricey but good deals offered when... More

This is a well designed & developed place for kids. Lot of entertainment & the experience is invaluable. Most of the activities are for kids above 4 years. So the kids should be ideally 4 years, but at least 31/2 yrs to experience many of the activities. The staff are well trained & have a lot of patience to deal... More

If you are in Dubai, make sure you visit this place to give your kids a different experience specially you want to give them knowledge rather than boring shopping malls and entertainment zone. Suggestion: If you have small kids, accompany them, if they are 7-8+ or sibling, they can enjoy without parents. Located within Dubai Mall, this place is safe,... More

Kidzania is the type of place I wish I had access to as a child. The concept of giving children an idea of what the real world is like is a nice one, and there is a variety of 'careers' that children can have a go at. The idea is for children to learn that things cost money, and that... More

If you are from Dubai you may like this place but for us this was a total waste of time and money. It was overcrowded and over priced. The concept of kids getting busy with their interest is excellent but too many kids trying to do the same things does not make any sense. Also the roof looked weird. I... More

A very entertaining location for the kids and so much they can do and learn. If they are old enough you can leave them there for hours on end. They have a very nice airplane cockpit with simulator and also fire departments, dentists and many more. Really recommend it for kids of any age, been to the one here and... More

We have sent our two kids of 8 and 9 years old for 2 hours. Even though we explain to them what to do, it seems they were a bit lost and didn't do much. Next time we will do it with them. A bit disappointing.
