A good day's outing with the kids. Lots of interactive activities for kids which makes science more fun and relatable.The ride in the oil drop was fun and the T-rex rapper was amusing for a while.After listening to it rap a few times though it loses it's charm. To be honest, the natural history section isn't as exciting as the... More

Me and my wife (28 and 24 years old) spent over 2 hours in this center and we really enjoyed it. There are a lot of physics experiments and things to do. Made by oil company, so some attractions are about environment and petrol procedures.

We had a few hours spare abd decided to go to the Discovery Centre near opening. What a great decision that was, no queue for any of the exhibits, the attendants had the time to explain the areas and exhibits. My kids had the time to take as long as they liked in each area. It was great fun for... More

My fiancée and I (both 24 years old) decided to try this out since we were in the petronas towers anyway and it was absolutely brilliant, such a great way to spend a couple of hours. I realise that it is directed at children but we weren't by far the only adults there with out kids. All of the exhibits... More

I don't know but I'm 22 but I really enjoyed this one! I guess those who are younger than me (or even older) would appreciate it even more. If you love space, petroleum, or science in general, well this is your happy place. One of the best science museums I've visited in my life. Two hours may not be even... More

Visited here not long ago, nice day out. Centre is quite large so would allocate around two hours to have a good look around. Includes many activities and experiments for everyone to have a go with. Staff are helpful and know the knowledge about the stations they're on. Very informative about the science elements but may be complex for young... More

Great place to spend half a day if you have kids. The activities are very engaging though some of the activities are only in Malaysian language. The 3D Dinosaur movie at the end was nice.
