I thoroughly enjoyed this place as it is very educational and eye opening of what involves working in an oil rig. This place is suitable for visitors of all ages both young and old. Very unique exhibits and volunteer staffs are extremely helpful and polite.

The show is nicely done with lots of variations technical infer and challenges for kids. The challenges change regularly and are well presented. Food inside is available not very good. Price is worth it.

Our kids are 12 and 14, son and daughter. Our daughter was not keen on visiting but once she got in to Petrosains, she loved it. So much to see and do, we actually ran out of time and 6pm had rolled around. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The hands on stuff is awesome and you can spend as long as... More

I was expecting more based on the location (one of KL's most expensive malls) and the reviews on TA. However all I can say is that the kids excitement when we first entered changed to boredom half way through. The only highlights were the ride at the start and at the end. Be prepared to pay for additions rides inside... More

We didnt realise how many floors there were. We could only stay for two hours and had to leave but we missed three floors. Make sure you allow at least half a day.

The presentation is i think specially designed for kids. Anyway they presented it well. For all the things they are selling, i dont think its worth it.

An awesome place for families to escape the shopping, heat & thunderstorms. We went at 4pm when it was a 6.30pm closing. I would recommend allowing at least 4 hours & avoid closing time as we did miss out on some exhibits due to arriving near closing time. Very attentive staff, lots of activities & an interesting way of getting... More
