“An Ordinary Aquarium on an Extraordinary Oceanfront”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

I have to say that the view of the Persian Gulf just outside of the Scientific Center was amazing! Ocne inside, I only visited aquarium at the Scientific Center in Kuwait and opted to pass on the Discovery Zone and IMAX, though those are also available options. The aquarium had a decent number of exhibits--owls, beetles, moray eels, kestrels, penguins, cuttlefish, and many others. Though the number of exhibits was appreciable, the quality remains questionable. I can't say that I'm a big fan of how they had a cockatoo tethered to his perch over water in the same exhibit as the peguins; it more or less raised concerns as to if these animals are well-taken care of, and it put sort of a damper on my experience from that point on. Aside from that, there are a many good points about the Scientific Center to include information in English as well as Arabic, a gift shop, places to buy light refreshments and fast food meals, as well as the center being kept very clean and tidy overall.
