The most memorable part of our journey for our 10 years old child. I think that it is better to refer to this site as a great "lab",instead of museum. People can experiment there and it is very interesting specially for students to spend time on examining what they have learned in their school theoretically by themselves in the fields... More

My Childrens love this place and they have also a package rate for family...it is worth it....would like to recommend you to come early in the morning because the tour will bring you around the petrosains and you will need time to have your kids time inside there to enjoy the science tools etc.!

Lots of great exhibits with LOTS to do for kids. Went on a Saturday so had to queue for a while but not sure if weekdays would make much difference. Gift shop has lots of fun science kits for kids. Highly recommend if coming to KL.

The centre offers diverse exhibits with numerous interactive displays that both the young and young at heart can enjoy. At roughly Rm26 for an adult (or RM37 if you opt to get a ticket for Illusion, too), it turned us 3 yuppies and a senior into little kids again. I particularly enjoyed the Space (hurricane simulator), Oil Platform (escape chute),... More

If your kids have an inkling towards science do visit it. If they do not have, still visit it. But you need at least 3-4 hrs to see and understand. There are offers on tickets for a family. We got 2 adults and 2 kids tickets for 52 RM. Enjoy!

Focusing more on the overview of the oil & gas industry, they are not short in fun facts and cool tricks! Not much upgrade throughout the few years but they do keep it interesting with different themes and mini-shows. Interactive shows and exhibitions are suitable for all ages and they explain science & math in fun ways!

There are some really exciting exhibits that can be experienced ...like the cyclone/typhoon simulator. Overall the children were engaged most of... More

Okay so I'm 20 and for me, Petrosains is boring. But, the Illusions at Petrosains is interesting. If you're an adult but you wanna explore science, please do visit Illusions instead of Petrosains :)
