Why should I visit?​

“We absolutely loved it! Indie had a blast!! I wish there was somewhere like this open in the UK”

Joe Wicks

The Body Coach

This is the epitome of magical, whimsical play, and there’s nothing like it elsewhere in the Middle East.

The National

Trying to extract my children from OliOli after 3 hours was a challenge to say the least and they’ve been BEGGING me to go back ever since. And this is one place we’ll be returning to again and again, a truly inspiring space for kids to learn and play and just be kids.

What is a Children’s Museum?

A children’s museum is a place of discovery to inspire young minds. Where hands-on activities replace hands-off exhibits and an open, safe environment gives children free rein to explore.

Every space has been carefully thought out-to encourage fun-filled learning experiences through play.

And not just any play; a series of immersive and interactive experiences that challenge children to think, imagine and create.

There is inspiration at every turn to spark a life-long love of learning.
