I had a great informative and fun time here. Aimed more at kids but great for adults too. Lots of interaction and educational stuff. I loved the wind chamber and the prehistoric area. Well worth a visit and not very expensive.

I went here twice but its like i went to two different places. They always upgrade and add the arena. Some of the tricks allow us to print, so we got something to bring home as reminder. Love it. I think both child and adult can learn new things in here.

That's a place for both adults and kids. Many wonders to explore and good place to spend a few hours of quality time. Situated inside the KL City Centre shopping mall, there are plenty of bites after the visit. Don't just visit the sky bridge of KLCC, visit this science center as well.

Lived in KL for 3 years and walked past this place 100 times and never went in. Now back in KL with a 4 year old and thought we would give it a try and were really impressed. Our 4 year old loved it, a couple of things did not work and the simulator was a waste but overall we... More

I have taken my nieces and nephew here multiple times and they are crazy for it! It's something cheap and easy to do in KL and especially nice for super hot or rainy days. Whenever we have been there, certain attractions have been broken, but there was still plenty to do to fill an afternoon. There is some shameless propaganda... More

The Petrosains Discovery Centre is at level 4 of Suria KLCC. It tells the story of the petrochemical industry in a fun and interactive way. Really enjoyable for the whole family to spend quality time together. Ticket fees are minimal and Malaysians with Mycard get a discount. From the age of dinosaurs to exploration of space, you are taken on... More

We spent over 5 hours here and could have stayed longer - there was so much to do! Our kids (aged 7 and 10) loved every minute - from the initial 'dark ride' in a pod as you enter the discovery centre (a great introduction!), to the multiple 'hands-on' experiments throughout the centre. We liked the 'cyclone' experience, the reactions... More

I remember going to Petrosains when I was a kid, and now I also enjoyed it as much. It's so much fun and the staff and volunteers are really informative and friendly. I took my nephew and niece and they seemed to enjoy it as well. However, when there's many visitors it gets a bit annoying to wait for the... More
