  • Kuala Lumpur travel experience or experience traditional culture, and had not been heard by the tour to. Frankly, there's plenty to see rich or funny, but you know the country's culture has been little's good time.

  • (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.
