Great fun and educational too! Went with a 7, 8 and 11 year old - they all loved it, including the adults! Planned for a half day visit, but so much to see, we ended up going to the KLCC food court for lunch and coming back for the afternoon. You do have to follow a set path, so be... More

It is worth visiting if you are visiting KL for the first time, but it is quite small and a bit pricey. (for foreigners) However, kids or even adults who love to learn more about science should have lots of fun as I have enjoyed it a lot!

Petrosains sounds just like Petronas, the oil company. Then it comes as no surprise that Petrosains has a whole lot of Petronas commercials, how great oil is, how good it is to work on an oil rig etc. But if you can get past that then there's a pretty good science center for the kids here, with a little bit...

Easily the highlight for my son (8yo) in KL . Informative, hands on and a great way to spend 3 or 4 hours. The science shows are great fun to watch too.

You need about 2 hours to finish all the stations. They have discount for senior citizens. There are many stations to have a hand on experience. Many stations for children and adults.
