“Nothing special but still the best attraction Kuwait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Really one of the very small number of decent edutainment venues for families in Kuwait... ok I can't actually think of any others. At least that's what I tell myself when I wonder why we took an annual family membership.

There are actually two separate attractions plus an imax theatre inside. The Aquarium is worth a visit once and live exhibits cover mostly the wild dessert and marine life in and around Kuwait.

The Discovery place is really only of interest to those with a mental age of 6 or below - so perfect for me - I especially love the sandpit, as do my two kids. Be warned than the exhibits don't change often so not much to keep bring annual members back - apart from the aforementioned sandpit. That said, there is a lovely coastal walk outside the centre with excellent views and is a great place for a walk or a picnic (this is actually open to the public without a ticket). There are also a couple of restaurants inside (a Pizza Hut and a Burger King as well as a Starbucks).

The imax shows an assortment of short films. Mostly with a nature/wildlife theme but there are others like the film Journey to Mecca. The main audio is dubbed Arabic but the original English soundtrack is available with headphones.

Worth a visit if you have kids but not even on the same planet let alone the same league as a proper museum like the science or natural history museums in London.

This center is always new to me eventhough I visited many times by myself or with family or even friends. I like the 3D cinema, the equarium and eating at the sea!!!

“One of my Favorite places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I have been to the Scientific Center several times and its always a good time. There is a IMAX theater, Aquarium, Gift Shop, StarBucks, Burger King.. the Classic Wooden ships that Kuwait is known for is outside in the Private Harbor. You have to pay to park but you can get a Parking Validation at the Imax Theater.
