Scienfific Center is like a place with several attractions for children. Not a research center! I enjoyed it taking pictures of the Old Dhow, hidden behind the building (not in the harbour).

Scientific Centre was one place we used to go every year for educational trip from our school. Its still the same as what we saw years before. High time they came up with some add-ons. But its a good place for all those first time visitors. IMAX is literally boring as they have limited movies which I doubt if even... More

I loved the scientific Centre and Aquarium 2 years ago. But a recent visit had me terribly dismayed. A dead desert rat where another rat was imitating the death pose and then jumping up as if trying to revive it's partner. The dead one had been there for some time which must have been psychologically disturbing for the others, particularly... More

Visited the place with my husband and my 4yr old girl noon time. Couldnt see anything but the aquarium and the desert animals as they werw the only age appropriate for her. Both were very poor as the majority of glass cages were empty and very dusty. The place generally was dark which frightened her a bit so she was... More

Dear Hadeel, Thank you for visiting The Scientific Center and for writing about your experience. in the Aquarium (Desert & Marine sections), lights have to be dimmed so that it won't reflect on the glass and obstruct the view of the visitors. There is no nap time for the animal, we actually have a feeding schedule for them in the... More

I have been there a couple pf times now and i would say that its just OK for a visit. Things dont change often so the newness kind of wears off after a while. The aquarium can be fun for kids and the Magic Planet may get a lot of visitors but apart from that i dont see the hype.

Hello, and thank you for visiting and writing to us about your visit. with a Science Center, its not an easy task to continually change what we offer. in the Aquarium, we can not change the content of a tank over night, as each type of fish requires specific biological / chemical requirements that differs from one type to another....

Honestly, unless you plan on watching every IMAX film they offer, you wont be here long. This place is perhaps the most disappointing place in Kuwait. Im not saying it isnt educational, but isnt Kuwait an oil rich nation flush in cash? Then what happened at this place? The aquarium is not very impressive. I walked through expecting an extravagant... More
