TSCK is a cultural achievement and educational facility enriched with knowledge, which portrays fascinating architectural design that reflects Islamic art and culture. The walls contain ceramic depictions of stories that tell of Kuwait’s history. The main building is comprised of three main attractions: the Aquarium, Discovery Place and IMAX Theater. It also houses supporting services such as Gift Shop, Cafe and Food court.
TSCK was presented to the citizens and visitors of Kuwait by Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah (God rest his soul). He was inspired to build the center while overseeing the board meetings for The Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences in 1992. The foundation aimed to create a hub where Kuwait could demonstrate its advancement and place in modern society, in addition to confirming its leadership role in the protection of the environment in the Arabian Peninsula.
