  • Cool museum for mainly kids. They have many activities in the exhibition hall, that are very entertaining for them. staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and show you many presentations on various things. Loved the planetarium! Do bring your children here.
  • Lots of science activities. Very informative working models, Mini Planetarium. Students & kids must visit this place :)
  • A good place to take your kids. They have nice workshops , a small planetarium and a lecture. They must increase the number of workshops. Tickets for kids below 5 years should be free.
  • This place is a great learning platform for the students. It is a must visit for education field trips.
  • Fun with education. My kids really enjoyed it. It's small but worth it. 10 dirhams for adult and 5 dirhams for kids. Lot of scientific showcase as well there are 2-3 science workshops and that's really amazing. It is jot very popular because of non media coverage. But every one should visit there its really good.
