We spent an hour here entertaining our son (7) and escaping the heat. There are a variety of interactive exhibits, which explore a range of scientific concepts such as Electrolysis, expansion of gases, sound, visual perception, reaction times, human body... It is open in the morning only, closing at 1pm.

The museum is fancy and glitzy but it is mostly well maintained. The exhibits are generally good and interesting. Older children will learn a thing or two and the younger can fiddle with the interactive displays. It's not the London Science Museum by any stretch but it is worth a visit if you have little ones especially if it's summer... More

This is suitable for small children and under 10s. The Museum has a lot of potential to be awesome as it explores The Human Body, Light and Sounds and other scientific discoveries. The displays just need to be expanded a bit and maintained so they are not damaged or out of use. The possibility of doing reading time there would... More

We were throughly disappointed as several of the displays were broken, it is tiny and while our son enjoyed the space inside (he was the only child there so was able to run around) we left within 20 minutes. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

After a long time to recall my past I visited the place which i did in 1996 earlier. Thus tome I took my kids to have a glimpse of this place and understand science the way I did it years ago. This place is located in Qurom and still is very well maintained

A brilliant place just at the corner near to Qurum Amphitheater, it is definitely worth a visit and kids by all means would love this place. The displays and information are just brilliantly displayed and kids could venture to few experiments to understand how science really works. The information is well laid in local and English language..take time out and... More
