I brought my kids and niece (age 6-12) and I would say worth visiting. I think due to school holiday, the place full packed of activities and we didnt get to finish exploring the place. And the kids got many souveniers also. 👌

Entrance fee is RM6 per adult and RM3 for kids above the age of 6.. Problem is.. with the cheap entrance fee.. comes a lot of "under maintenance" sections throughout the center. On the plus side, toilets are really clean!

For the price that we paid ( RM3 for adult and RM3 for children ), it was a place worth visiting. Although the exhibits weren't really that interesting, but it did kept my children occupied for 2 full hours. They were more interested in the play area than the science exhibits. Water and food were not allowed inside the centre... More

A must visit for science lovers, local tourists or even international tourists, this is a damn fine attraction if you are interested in science. Surroundings for some might not be oh-god-so-clean-like-a-5-star-hotel type, but it's good.

Brought my toddler aged 3+ years old. He was so excited especially at the main gallery as he can try many things. Need more improvement for Butterfly farm and Science area where most of the exhibits is not functioning. Great explore area at the toddler area near science show stage. More room for improvement, all in all great place for... More

Not for anybody with a keen interest in science. More of a playground than a science centre. Not conveniently located, far out of centre.

Even though the admission charges are somewhat reasonable i.e. RM 6 for adult and RM 3 for child (6-12 years old), the place is quite run down and almost half of the exhibits are not functioning. Some of these non functioning exhibits did not even have a 'not working' sign, it can be frustrating at times when kids tried on... More

I took my three children aged 8, 7 and 5 to the National Science Centre on a weekday and we had a lovely time. The children really engaged with several exhibits and we explored for hours until hunger pangs started! The food selection didn't appeal to us and we were disappointed to find the water play area 'under maintenance'. However,... More

I wouldn't take my child here. There were a lot of broken exhibits/ machines. When you enter there are sharks and big fish on am aquarium over your head. I thought this was the National Science Centre, not an aquarium. The building is old, the exhibits are old and dirty and broken. Do not bother with the science of fear,... More
