It was ok - btw we are local Malaysians. Nothing very fascinating - more suited for teenagers instead of primary scholars. Go early i.e before 10am to beat the queue.

Good location in klcc. Probably best for kids but exciting for adults too. The entry and exit by a railway is fun. Allow at least 2 hours as there is lots to see. Fun afternoon!

Overall, its great for some exposure for kids to world of Science. And since its taken care by Petronas - the National Oil firm, we get to learn a lot about the Oil and Gas field in Malaysia and some abroad.

Really deceptive as to what is inside. Spent a couple of hours here, but could have spent more. Fun for all ages. Well organised and would be great for a rainy day activity.

An extensive series of hands-on exhibits aimed at teaching/demonstrating all aspects of science to children. Be prepared to spend 1/2 day here! Our children loved it. May want to bring long-sleeved tops as the A/C is intense.

It is a very interesting place to visit. We learned new things and had so much fun there. The volunteers there were helpful. Unfortunately we came a bit late, so we only had so little time to enjoy it. It closes by 5.30 pm. Probably better to allocate at least 3 hours. If you go with young children, they will... More
