  • There are a lot of displays that provide a good learning opportunity for kids. Dads and moms should take their children there to explain everything. It's not that big, but if you aim to explain everyt...  more »
  • Something different within Saudi to see and experience. This place is ideal to take the kids and for them to enjoy if the demonstrations are working, which most weren't. The I-max cinema is worth a vi...  more »

  • Used to be an excellent place for knowledge and entertainment. Currently requires maintenance, maintenance and some more maintenance. Many devices are broken and bits and pieces are missing from devices and instruments. iMax is very cool and recommended. The place is still informative and is good for some family time.
  • Nice to go there with your kids and your family. you will not get bored quickly and average stay there is around 3 hours with good set of activities. IMAX cinema with stuff like National Geographic stuff 5 museums or halls with good knowledge for kids 7 years or older but needs some maintenance. You will enjoy your day there.
  • Good outing for the kids. Loved the permanent science exhibits. Especially the aquarium. The day we went there were some temporary stalls for the kids with various activities and puppet show. Those were good. This was my first time at an IMAX. We watched a documentary on nature. However the audio was in Arabic. But it still was awesome.
  • A great place to go to with children. The whole place is divided into five or six sections. There is a telescope too, although it remains closed most of the time.
  • Must see place while visiting Al Khobar. High school students can observe science, chemistry, earth sciences, human body models. Very clean and organised.

Where to stay in Al Khobar

Most accommodations in Al Khobar tend toward the high end; as with many Middle Eastern cities, it lacks mid-range hotels. Most luxury establishments lie situated in the same area, just off 4th Street, and only a short stroll from the lively and vibrant waterfront. Reserve in advance to secure the best deals.
