“See the IMAX 'Fires of Kuwait'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

A must see is the 2D 'Fires of Kuwait' documentary about the oil fires post 1991 invasion and the courage of the fire fighting teams that achieved the task of extinguishing the fires. Incredible 30 minute production. It put the visit to Kuwait in context. Well worth it.

“Worth a visit!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

With time to do nothing else, it would be hard to beat a trip to the excellent Scientific Center. Housed in a fine, sail-shaped building on the corniche, the center's mesmerizing aquarium is the largest in the Middle East.
Friendly staff. Explaining stuff in depth with your interest @ the aquarium.
A few gadgets placed @ the scientific center for kids to learn a few basics of physics.
Don't miss this on your visit to Kuwait!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

This is one of the most interesting location for kuwait visitors. great for the whole family, Imax thatre, Discovery area for kids and finally the great aquarium which is the best in middle east. This is the great place to spend at least half a day there. Proudly, I was the engineer in charge for all the life support system of the aquarium and have worked there for 3 years.
