Our family enjoyed this museum so much we went back twice in one week. They have something for everyone. There are mini science shows throughout the museum and tons of hands on activities for the whole family. Must go and see!

It was heaven and the staff are very kind. The interactive part is the best and you can really learn a lot and then have a race in a race car!

Before we proceeded to our shopping spree, we went to discover science at this place. There were many mind teasers to test your skills. There were also many press the button exhibits for me to attempt and in the process discover science. However, a few of these exhibits were faulty. Just hoping that the administrators would rectify the faulty ones.... More

I've been a few times and each time I've been there's always been a new installation. The discovery centre is interesting and is suited well for a younger audience that are keen to learn more about science, although, having said that, there are also exhibitions that would bee of interest to an older audience too. It's interactive and visitors are... More

Especially if you wanna have a short Science discovery in your holiday in KL this is the place for you. Kids will enjoy some bizarre games and some nice tryouts. Quite good for young learners.

Great activity based science centre - in the early part heavily skewed towards the oil/petrol side of things (Petrosains!) but overall, great hands on science experiments. If its raining outside or a little too hot, then this is a wonderful activity for kids. Make sure you allow at least 3 hours so you don't get rushed through....

Situated in klcc, top floor this is good fun for all the family. Make sure you book in advance as it is always packed. Best to go here when you arrive, then eat and shop! Lots to do and you do learn interesting facts. However there are time slots and you are not able to take as long as hoped,... More

Exploring petro science in steps, digging very much excitement through many learning points. Reveal science in a very simple way to understand. Great experience. Good price, need about 3-4 hours approximately inside. Good for kids, and for personal knowledge.
