The Scientific Center of Kuwait

The Scientific Center of Kuwait is a non-profit organization comprised of three main facilities : an Aquarium, an IMAX Theater and a hands-on Discovery Place; as well as other supporting facilities. The Center was inaugurated in April 2000 and was considered the first of it’s kind in the Middle East Region. The Scientific Center is dedicated to the advancement of the sciences and cultural heritage of Kuwait, and to promoting public awareness and knowledge of the wildlife and ecosystems of the Arabian Gulf Region; and consequently committed to the care and preservation of these ecosystems. The Center strives to involve all sectors of the community in learning through a fun and stimulating medium. At the Aquarium, in addition to the scheduled public feedings, several programs are offered such as “Dive with the Shark Program” and “Adopt An Animal Program”. At Discovery Place, outreach programs are offered as well as in-house enrichment programs, star-shows and a puppet-show. At IMAX Theater, educational and environment oriented films are showed, as well as private screening of constructive films theme-related to our objectives. Other services are a Gift Shop and Food Court to make the visitors’ experience at The Scientific Center an unforgettable, fun-learning visit.
