Even when we don't have kids, we decided to go to PSDC, as we both like science centers generally. No exception here - Nice afternoon with many interesting rooms and gadgets. I think it's educating for most of the adults too, so no reason to skip thinking it's childish. Only thing I did not enjoy that much, was oil pumping... More

Wonderful place for kids and adults, and if you're an adult, find the child in you! Enjoy and think back about the science you learned in school. Heard they renovated this place recently......am sure it'll be better. I hope they keep the 'little' ride inside - safe and nice for all ages.

many science activities for kids to try out. not just petroleum related. But it is little bit expensive. so ensure that you spend 3-4 hours doing every experiment that is available there to get the most for the money spent.

This place is really huge..you need more than 2 hours to explore this place and try everything here. The exhibits are interactive where the kids can try each of these items. As an adult..i also enjoyed and having fun playing with the exhibit. I would definitely come again

This is a magnificent effort by the petronas company to help us learn more about Science in general and Chemistry of Petroleum products in particular. The place is definitely worth a visit, keep 3 to 5 hours if you have inquisitive kids. Not an ideal place of you have older people in your group since there is a bit of... More

Always the same. The dinosaur, the shows, the display, the exhibitions, the helicopter ride...etc...One visit should last a lifetime. The only thing that is updated is the store.
