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

A 9-year old daughter loved it because she was able to touch and experiment with all the exhibits. And of course, I enjoyed it because my kid enjoyed it. For an adult, there is not much to do.

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.
