My 9 years daughter mentioned this place as the best place we visited in our journey which includes many activities for her in dubai and abu Dhabi. It's something unique in our countries to blend fun with education like this. - indoor -cheap tickets -3 hours minimum -suitable from 3 to 15 years

Great place with lots of activities that explain everyday science in a wonderful and interesting manner to children. You can spend 2 to 2.5 hours there easily and your kids will learn a lot. Do not miss it if you are nearby.

Entrance fee is 10 AED but it is worth to visit. It is very interesting for children. They can spend more than 2 hours and enjoy. Scientific subjects are shown with simple examples.

A lot of information is packed in this not so spacious but reasonably planned and designed. You need to take kids there, many things here interest adults equally
