We spend several hours inside, it has a lot of attractions and not of all of them are just for kids. Aerospace, science and dinosaur areas was almost perfect, but area where children can do some intersting exercises is near to disaster :(. A lot of tables not work, or they are broken. But keeping in mind that ticket is... More

This is a great place to bring your children. Situated in KLCC, you may bring your kids here for an educational tour lasting around 3 hours. Science is made lots of fun and this place is quite well organized and managed.

We took the family ticket while visiting. The exhibits interested adults and children equally. NASA exhibits, the petroleum history, the Rig among other things was loved by everyone. There are interactive centers in each sections and they would be loved by kids. They had a demo session on Liquid Nitrogen while we were there. Kids loved the Archaeology area where... More

Visited Petrosains with my family on 25th of last month. I felt that both my time and money was well spent.

We spent an afternoon here to eat some time and ended up enjoying ourselves. Ticket prices were reasonable (again, if you are tertiary students you can use your cards for a discount) but there were some optional rides which were extra once inside. We didn't do any of them as they seemed like for children. The exhibits are in Bahasa... More

From the outside this looks like the size of a couple of shops. It isn't, it's much, much larger. After the initial ride some of the exhibits can look a little Mickey Mouse (in a derogatory sense), but the quality does improve as you got further in. In fact that is a feature of this place. Just as the quality... More

Even when we don't have kids, we decided to go to PSDC, as we both like science centers generally. No exception here - Nice afternoon with many interesting rooms and gadgets. I think it's educating for most of the adults too, so no reason to skip thinking it's childish. Only thing I did not enjoy that much, was oil pumping... More

Wonderful place for kids and adults, and if you're an adult, find the child in you! Enjoy and think back about the science you learned in school. Heard they renovated this place recently......am sure it'll be better. I hope they keep the 'little' ride inside - safe and nice for all ages.

He enjoys it. He can do anything inside Petrosains. Everything is safe. They can explore by themselves.

many science activities for kids to try out. not just petroleum related. But it is little bit expensive. so ensure that you spend 3-4 hours doing every experiment that is available there to get the most for the money spent.
