The area
Neighbourhood: Al Quoz
Al Quoz sits literally at the halfway point between old and new Dubai. At first sight it has little to recommend it: warehouses and factories dominate the area, with some residential areas on the outskirts. Heavy goods vehicles roar up and down the roads and laborers stop at small hole-in-the-wall cafes for a cheap lunch. But it is fast becoming a magnet for art lovers: Alserkal Avenue is a significant contemporary art hub, home to 25 galleries and arts spaces, with ambitious expansion plans. The galleries host exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, auctions, and community events. If you love art, pass by to visit the galleries, it’s a great opportunity to get a sense of art and community in the region and to sit alongside key influencers and artists as they go about their day.

    Fantastic school trip
    Came here on a school trip with a group of students. Staff were fantastic while organising the trip beforehand and great to communicate with. We visited 6 of the galleries and the students loved them all. Very well structured day and each gallery is so interactive and exciting. It is a very inclusive and hands on day for the students and I would definitely love to return again for future trips.
    Dear Kevin, Thank you so much for your positive feedback, we are so happy to hear that you had an engaging and exciting field trip experience with us, as well as a smooth communication process with our wonderful team! We hope to welcome you again for future field trips!

    Best place hands down!
    Oli Oli is honestly one of the most AMAZING places to visit in the UAE. Whether you are a mom to a busy toddler or an Inquiring 6 year old, I cannot recommend this place enough. As a school I have brought our Early Years students the last 2 years to enjoy the wonderful offers of a field trip. And, as a mom, I have loved seeing my son explore all the nooks and crannies, adventures and challenges there is to see. Without a doubt, OLI OLI is a must be place to go!

We pride ourselves on providing a truly unforgettable experience for kids of all ages! We look forward to welcoming you back to OliOli® soon for more joyful adventures!

    Highly recommended for families with young kids!
    OliOli is a fantastic attraction to bring your children to - so much to do, well laid out, kept sparkling clean and good value for money. It's not cheap, but then nothing in Dubai is but you definitely get your money's worth at OliOli. Our kids loved it!

This was an awful experience. The employees are rude and inexperienced and for a company which seems so professional, hire better staff.

We want to thank the incredible team at Olioli for hosting our school during our recent visit. Our students had an absolute blast exploring the various areas and participating in the engaging workshops. The instructions were not only clear but also tailored perfectly to the children's understanding, making the entire experience seamless and enjoyable. One standout workshop was the Cars and Ramps activity, which not only captivated our students but also tied in wonderfully with the IB curriculum, fostering their creativity and innovation. We're already eagerly anticipating our next visit and can't thank the Olioli team enough for providing such a memorable and educational experience for our students. Highly recommended!

My child & I visited on 21 May from 10.30am to 1pm. In every gallery/station, we were greeted by a friendly crew who was so patient in explaining the how-to to my child. In particular, the crew member at the colouring station interacted so well with my child. The activities are engaging, perfect for young children!

Such a fun, interactive and thoughtful place where kids can learn, have fun and thrive! We love to visit Oli Oli! My daughters are thrilled to do all the activities and go around all the rooms. They loved the water room, the escape room, the cars and ramps, the playarea, the science activities, the net...I would say...everything! Plus they organize birthday parties and now they have "scavenger hunt" as an option! Amazing! My daughter already asked me to celebrate her birthday at Oli Oli! 🧩🔎🥽⚙️🔗👩‍🎨👩‍🔬

We have been a couple of times and enjoyed the experience. However, I was really disappointed with our last trip there.

It was our final weekend as a family of 3 and we wanted to take our daughter there before I gave birth the following week. When we arrived, they informed me that for every additional adult, it is 45dhs. I informed the staff that I was just going to sit in the cafe while my husband took my daughter around. I was informed that this was not allowed and I would have to pay 45dhs to enter, even if it was just to sit in the cafe.

I find it very off putting that only one parent is free to accompany the child. Not both parents. It is already quite an expensive visit, so having to pay for one parent, doesn’t invite family days out.

Well the place is ok, but not worth all the hype about it. We were told that it is one of the best indoor play area in Dubai. Nothing special about it. Very small and the whole thing can be done on like 1 hour. The entrance fee is so high considering what kids can do inside and how long they can stay. As mentioned, it is an ok play area for the kids if you just want to kill an hour. We won’t go back for sure.

Such an incredible experience with my children. They loved it and can't wait to go back. All the galleries are meticulously planned to deliver the most captivating and enjoyable play experience for children. I loved how it is designed to let children use their critical thinking and problem solving skills in such a fun filled environment. The staff were highly competent and addressed my children by their name thanks to the name label they got upon entry. I asked my son what his favourite part was and he replied " all of it!!". Thank you for an unforgettable day. We hope to visit again soon.
