If you're from Australia, you might be familiar with the AIS and Questacon. This museum is a combination of both with plenty of hands on activities for the kids that involve interesting facts and learning opportunities. There is also a large "garden" outside which affords some capacity to run around in a city bereft of such opportunities.

We have been members for 3 years now. We love visiting 2 to 3 times a month. The kids love the Museum.

Our entire family (ages 7- 42) loved this museum! It was educational and fun and, by far, one of the best kids museums we have ever been to (including those in the States). The signs and explanations were both in English and Arabic. We would definitely recommend it!

Went here to do recon for a possible school trip and was rather put off after being told that we couldn't visit without children. We then had to ask for the manager and explain to him why we were visiting and we were then finally allowed to visit.

Don't look further. If you have a familiy with kids aged 3-11 and look for an activity for your kids, then this place is a must visit. The children's museum offers a combination of playful, fun, and educational exhibit items and activities. The only disadvantage I could think of was the lack of a proper restaurant, as they only have... More
