I have children of 11, 13, 15 and 22 and this was a great museum to entertain them in. They all really enjoyed the visit and it promoted interaction between the children as well as with the activities. It's not too busy either and the gift shop has some great stuff in it. It's a place we would go back... More

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
