From a toddler to 12 years of age, this really is the latest and greatest center for children. The Center opened in March 1999, this colorful 'scientific park' covering 3,800 square meters, provides everything children love to see and do in safe, supervised surroundings. Based on theme areas including Sports World, body World, Water World, Build Town and Drive Town, children can touch, experiment, run and have fun.
In addition, the center offers a kiddy supermarket, bank, recording studio and a chance to put on wings and fly around the world.
Toddlers can enjoy their very own soft play area. School groups can benefit from reduced charges in the morning and organized activities, including the TV Studio Workshop.
Whilst it appears to be 'all play', the underlying aim is to teach youngsters about the biological, physical and technological worlds, in a practical way. There is so much to do and learn in this very active environment which not only entertains children but adults too!
The center has its own cafe serving a limited range of food and drinks, a gift shop and ample parking is provided in the grounds.

Saturday to Tuesday from 9 AM to 2 PM
Wednesday to Friday: from 3:30 PM to 8:30 PM ONLY
Timings are subject to change without notice.
