We found ourselves in Suria KLCC with a few hours to kill while waiting for the Petronas to light up. We decided to check out Petrosains. It cost us only RM25 each, and they give you a discount (RM22.5) if you are a student (from any country) as long as you show them your school ID. We had to leave... More

This interactive science centre is much more than discovery, there is a lot of detail here if you want it. A brief visit is 2.5 hours, easily spend 5 hours. Some of the technology used in the displays is dated and can be updated to brighter flashier LED screen and LED/LCD monitors, but it does the job. makes Scienceworks back... More

We took our kids aged 10 and 11 and they really loved it. After 3 hours, we had to drag them out! There is so much for them to do here, they learn at the same time and it's great for them to get to be so hands-on. The only downsides are that the beginning and end exposes you to... More

We were here for a little over 2 hours, but could have stayed longer. Hardly anybody there, place almost to ourselves. Staff super helpful, lots of personal attention. Lots to touch, try, see, experience and read (the least of their worries) ... Paid the family price (2 adults + 2 kids = MYR 50) even though only 1 adult and... More

It's on the top (4th) floor of the Suria KLCC mall which is attached to Petronas Towers. NOT open Monday unless it's school holidays. If you've been to the likes of Questacon in Canberra then this is not anywhere near that quality of presentation and I would think that, like me, you'd be disappointed. Language. Unless you speak Malaysian or... More
