  • This was the very 1st place we visited in KL with our 8 and 10 yo. They loved it. Since it isn't a stuffy, do-not-touch museum but a discovery center we all had an absolute blast. We went during the w...  more »
  • If you are a child you precisely the Court: Here you can spend the whole day. For children-is a fascinating, knowable, the wonderful world of science is that you can feel, see, touch, learn and participate in the process. Work with on Tuesday from 9.30 to 16, at the weekend from 9.30 to 17. Monday-Closed! Worth 30 ringit-you can pay by card. Not boring will parents: feel like an astronaut, for example. Still, better to experience the power of the wind at 127 miles per hour in a secure cabin than in reality. So grab your children and entertainment for the whole day you provided. One floor below the TC get transportation you can always grab a bite to eat at the Food Court of at least 40 edalen-for every taste and budget. If only for adults-then honestly, boring though.

  • Good place to learn basic science for children. However, some of the facilities do not function well. Hope that they are repaired apart having the exhibitions updated from time to time. Besides that, I hope that the authorities can do something to improve the queue for the Dark Ride at the entrance in order to reduce the waiting time. And, a walkway should be provided at the exit for those who do not wish to get trapped at the long queue for the exit ride.
  • I know this is a great place although I never had the chance to get inside. My clue is their gift shop Xplorasi which is a cool store. Got my Boboiboy stuff from them.
  • Very nice place to be with kids. If do not consider that some of the facilities doesn't work, it is fun to be there!
  • Disappointed on the website update operation hours status, checking online mention closed on Christmas 25/12/2017. So we have reach KLCC in the early morning but no going due to website mention is closed. However when the time we pass by on the late noon it is OPEN, but ticket sold out. So DISSAPOINTED!!
  • Petrosains is a 7,000sqm interactive science discovery centre located on the fourth floor of the Petronas Twin Towers. Good for a few hours of fun-filled activity, the complex is largely dedicated to the field of petroleum science and presents science and technology in a fun and entertaining way.
