  • (Visited Sept 2016) Various sections were closed for maintenance, with the few accessible exhibits leaving much to be desired in the way of audience engagement. Entrance is free however (though a small fee must be paid for admittance to various space-related theater screenings), and robust air conditioning makes this place a welcome respite from the midday heat, if little else.
  • Balai Cerap is closed till further notice due to lift problem
  • Free. Bridge stair between national museum and planetarium. Also not far away from mational mosque.
  • Because i will go there... Yay!
  • Quirky and interesting. A short walk from the bird park and well worth the visit.
