See Kuwait’s Scientific Center attractions

The Scientific Center in Kuwait aims to bring the technological and scientific achievements of the Kuwait people to light by putting them on display. Inside there are four main attractions, the Aquarium, Discovery Place, Dhow Harbor and an IMAX theater. Spend a day at the center with the family and take home a better understanding of the culture and some great memories.

Get submerged at the aquarium

First stop at the Scientific Center is the aquarium. Inside they have three different zones filled with the animals in a recreation of their natural habitat. Step through the desert and see mammals, lizards, snakes and even hedgehogs. Once finished there, visit the coastal area and meet penguins, otters, birds and other animals that live both near rivers and mangroves. The last zone is filled with underwater species. There are over 100 different species from the Red Sea, Gulf and waters off South Africa. Be sure to catch the feeding times and if you dare, dive with the sharks!

Learn at Discovery Place

Discovery Place is a perfect space for the kids to grow their minds and have fun at the same time. There are lots of educational games and videos and interactive learning exhibits. During the day, four different screenings of the Starship Shows also take place. Inside what is called the laser planetarium, you can get an idea of what the stars look like up close. In addition to learning new things at Discovery Place, the center has an IMAX theater showing educational and documentary films.

A trip around Dhow Harbor

Outside in the sunshine, the center has a historical treat waiting for you to explore. The Fateh-El-Khair is a huge sailing ship from 1938 and is the only surviving ship of its kind. Walk about the area and grab some photos of the magnificent vessel. Once done, head to one of the cafes or restaurants nearby and enjoy the beautiful Kuwait weather.

When it is time to head back to the hotel, make your stay as easy as possible and be sure to get a room at Radisson Blu Hotel, Kuwait.
