We have been here a few times since our kids were really young to now when they are 13 and 15. It's not the sort of place you would go every few weeks but a return trip every couple of years is well worth it.

The kids loved this place, even said it was their favourite part of the vacation. Only RM50 for family of 4, we spent quite a few hours in here, enough to entertain the kids and the adults

It is located on level 4 of Suria KLCC Mall on the Petronas Twin Towers. We went there after lunch on Chinese New Year and there were a lot of people. It was a long wait and I got the feeling it didn’t stand for the expectations! If possible go there and choose the time you want to visit. We... More

Like the high tech and fun gadgets that is free for visitor to experience hands on. Dislike the take away souvenir which looks like cheap China made premiums

First time visited this science center. It gives me a very surprise experience that I am proud that Malaysia has this good place for the tourist and the local people to visit. The center is big and you may need to spend at least 2 hours and above to enjoy it.. Many experiential things inside to explore. It is indeed... More

The attraction of a science center is always high with children. We went in with the view that we will be out in about an hour or so. But the place was so exciting that even after rushing we could barely try everything and leave in 2 hours starting from their capsule ride, everything is quite exciting. the place is... More

This attraction might carry an underlying marketing message that Petronas fuels the world - it is after all housed in the Petronas Towers - but do not let that put you off.The Discovery Centre is a children centred attraction that engages kids with ride on carts, interactive science based activities and shows, astronomy, geology, physics and science and even a...

This was our second visit as the kids loved it during our first visit in 2012. Everything was the same as I remembered except the 3D roller-coaster. My kids loved to play all the activities especially the interactive games.However, we had to wait for about 10-15 minutes for certain games or activities and my kids complained about it. This is...

I wasn't sure if there would be much fun to be had in here for my three year old daughter but she loved it, as I imagine would children of pretty much any age. It covers a wide range of science topics from space, weather, sound, mechanics, geology, petroleum etc. and is absolutely filled with fun, interactive exhibits. We particularly... More
