Been here on a few occasions but it could do with an upgrade. The animals in behind glass are in small enclosures. They've been there for years, caged in. Sad to see them like this, they have no souls any longer.
The otter tank has been empty for a few years, they were a joy to watch diving through the water at speed but now there's water and no otters. Some other exhibits are empty too, the rodents enclosure smells bad and there are only a couple in it. It's dark and eery in there, no real atmosphere for animals or visitors.
Most days there are school trips here, lots of kids, some are given questionnaires to fill by their teachers, a lot treat the centre as a place to let loose and run riot.
The aquarium is still lovely to watch but I'm sure the mammals could do with a change from their limited surround too.

A well thought out project to explain the marine & other scientific facts of life to younger & older generations alike.

Its Clean & clearly marked for visitors. Equal importance has been given to English & Arabic languages for information, unlike other exhibits in Kuwait, where Arabic language enjoy a predominance The scientific center offer various ways to discover Kuwait especially everything that it's related to the marine. My kids loved it few years ago, when we visited this place. Planing to visit them this year as well & take the annual family membership which entitles you to unlimited access to the facilities throughout the year & special screening invitations for animax pictures.

Its OK - but sad to see so little cash spent on this place. Compared to other Science Museums overseas its poor. Shame Kuwaiti Government - spend more on this place

I visited the Scientific Center with my students. It is a great place. There are many interactive and informative static displays as well as many live animals and fish. Unfortunately, most of the teachers who bring their students here just let them go and do not supervise them. The hoardes of boys from other schools repeatedly ran over my kindergarteners who were behaving and trying to listen and learn.
