Super exciting for the kids and the kid in you. Beware - A dinosaur shop will make your kid go crazy and you may get bankrupted buying the tons of stuff there.

Great variety of activities and displays for young children to learn about this special earth that we have been blessed with. Lots of opportunities for hands-on learning, where visitors get to interact/play with the items on display. The train ride at the start of the visit was a bonus ... sets the expectations for a meaningful time of learning ahead.

Kids will love it! Good place to kill time, I was waiting for my turn to go up the Petronas Twon towers. This place is informative and has things to explore if you're into space and science.

Petrosains is an excellent science centre that you need to allow a good few hours to see. The centre covers everything from space through to dinosaurs, magnets to motion and has a replica oil rig inside.

This is my second trip with the nephews. They both enjoyed the trips of the discovery centre, which is located in the 4th floor of the Suria KLCC. You can easily kill a couple of tour exploring the stuff here which are very much related with petroleum industry. However I noticed the exhibits are still very much the same compared... More

Situated in the shopping area in KLCC is an educational playground for kids. Can occupy up to 4 hours in here especially if your kids want to read everything and try their hands on everything.
