We combined this with the wildlife park which is a few miles away. we didn't think we would spend too much time here but we were wrong! Educational interactive exhibits. Loads of things for the kids to do. Easily spend a 2-3 hours here and tickets are only 10 aed for adults and 5 aed for children which is a bargain

What a great centre for kids and adults alike. Plenty to keep all ages entertained. Lots of kids engineering and science based activities. Cafe area where you can either buy food or area to sit and enjoy your own food from home. Overall a highly recommend outing for the whole family.

Took my 5 year old granddaughter there I thought for an hour or so, but two and a half hours later I had to force her away. I was really impressed none of this new technology all the things kids just love to play. Electric cars they can drive around a simple track, mechanical cranes they can hoist thing up, airport luggage conveyor belt x-raying bags. a helicopter, boat, soft play area, oh so many activities. Kids will love it and it's cheap 5 Dhs for the children and over 65's are free. There is a small cafe and gift shop and plenty of car parking space. Will differential go the again.

This places provides a fun day out for the whole family and especially if you have kids of different ages.

There are lots of activities for the kids, plenty of parking, a gift shop although the cafe is pretty basic and lack a variety of foods to eat. There is a prayer room there. During Eid they had competitions and gave the kids decent prizes like board games.

Definitely a nice place to keep kids entertained for a few hours while indoors. With a very reasonable entrance fees you could probably take them a few times a month especially during the summer holidays. Its a well used facility so don't expect things to be as new.
Its a edutainment facility for children where they get to learn and explore various engineering and physics theories. there is also a small basketball and football area where they can practice shooting hoops and kicking goals. there is a mini soft play area in a corner, a water world where they visualize the power of flowing water, a construction site with cranes and pulleys and a make believe airport.
Taking a group of kids there allows them to enjoy imaginative play at its best.

Excellent venue to spend a few hours with the kids. Plenty to keep them occupied, plus things for adults too.

My little one just loved this place. She got hands on with all the exhibits, and she was not only having fun but she was learning as well. The Discovery Center is cheap (kids are priced at 5 Dirhams, and adults at 10), and there’s so many engaging interactions. She especially enjoyed the water games, the driving and the construction section. This is great for four hours of uninterrupted play!

I had high expectations for this place because of the reviews and was actually quite disappointed. My child is 8. It was pretty baby-ish for her. The science museum was much better.

The water world center was a flop, no boats, no balls, more than half the things didn’t work. The airport— so stupid, put on fake wings and run around?! Oil works was fun but not enough balls. Driving track was fun too but they had all the roads blocked off so we went in circles. NOTHING working in sky TV.

It’s cheap so no major loss of money.

A decade in Sharjah and this was the first time to visit this place. It is indeed a very fun and educational place where your kids can play all day for 5AED ticket. The parents has to pay 10 AED and will do a lot of explaining how this or that machine works. My daughter has some driving lessons, staying on her lane and following signal lights.
Lots of learning about the human body, brain activities as well as physical challenges like wall climbing or tight rope balancing.

Come to this place with your kids and you will never regret it. The cost will be much cheaper than of the malls yet so many attractions and learning for the young minds.

One of the best attractions in Sharjha, please take you chikdren upto age of 4-12 years of age they will love this place. Plenty of science to learn, amazing with prayer room, toilets, baby change room, canteen. Cheap to go about £4 or so UK money. Plenty of parking also go there before evening as it's quiet with less people. Must go for families.
