  • If you ask kids where they'd like to go on their days off, they'd probably suggest a mall. I'm looking at you Avenues. But the next time, before you ask your kids where they'd like to go. Stop. And do...  more »
  • A good place to spend some time with the kids.The 3D IMAX theater is amazing, as the entire movie is full 3D and it creates a surreal viewing experience. There is a walk in aquarium filled with sharks...  more »
  • 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).

  • This is a great place for entertainment. There are three main attractions: 1- i-max movie theatre where different movies start per day and you can choose the one you want to watch. 2- Discovery is where children learn in depth about a specific science.. i have seen two so far, one was about Light and the second is about environment. I assume they change from time to time. 3- Aquarium is about the local habitat in Kuwait and it also include a large aquarium area.
  • The Aquarium is short but has lots of different species and a brief history about Kuwait previous ecology and lifestyle which is my personal favourite because you can learn about the country. Has a great Gift/Toy Store which mostly focuses on endangered animals toys.IMAX Cinema is a great experience you can book mostly scientific movies which contributes to our Earth and Space. Relaxing environment outside, 2 restaurants Applebees and Pizzahut, one sweet vendor, ice cream store KDD which I mostly enjoy and one frozen yogurt store Pinkberry. Discovery place is great for children which make them learn scientific facts about different things.
  • Fun for children. The aquarium is amazing kids all ages will enjoy it. The discovery is suitable for 6-13 yo, but boring to me honestly. There is a starbucks and a pinkberry and some fast food restaurants. When the weather is cooler walking or biking outdoor is really nice.
  • This place is a Kuwaiti landmark and a must-visit when in Kuwait. I believe the main idea of this place is to help children have a stronger relationship and aproach toward science. It does so using educational 3D IMAX films, edicational video games, and an amazing Aquarium showing animals from the desert, coastline and deep sea. This place has a Starbucks and recently opened an Applebees I think. As a child I visited this place alot and greatly enjoyed my time there.
  • Overall experience was good but too crowded on Fridays
