Located directly on the waterfront at Ras Al Ardh in the Salmiya region in Kuwait, the Scientific Center of Kuwait (TSCK) serves as an environment-focused educational meeting point for the whole Arabian Gulf area. It was inaugurated by late Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and it covers an area of about 80,000 square meters with the building itself stretching over 18,000 square meters.
This magnificent center is a precious gift to the whole nation and it hosts the largest Aquarium of the Middle East area. Tourists can have a wonderful time focusing on the natural habitats of the sea, getting a glimpse of the underground passages rich in marine life, the desert of the Arabian Peninsula and natural habitats of the coastal edges. Beside the Aquarium, other major attractions of the Scientific Center are the Discovery Place, a 250 seat IMAX film theatre and the Dhow Harbour, which proudly houses on display seven historic pearl diving boats.
