  • It's okay. The exhibit needs repair & improvement. Science exhibit is kinda outdated and somewhat Jurassic, history yes but the presentation is already old and not updated. I like the big aquarium. The iMax is not 3D. It is 2D and outdated too. The movie is like filmed sometime in the 70s or 80s and it is only narrated in Arabic, no English.
  • Science and Tech for all ages is at its best. If you have craze to learn science best place 4 u. Also a 4D cinema is alao attractive to see nature movies.
  • First time to try access to the halls and it was excellent experience. Kids loved it. Also the Eid show were amazing.
  • A totally impressive science museum! Probably the best place to visit in the Khobar entire area!
  • Very good place for all family members Interesting thing to know about and very attractive activities in weekend and summer holidays

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.
