This was our first visit to the center so we had a difficult time to reach it though it is strategically located in the city centre of KL. There were lots of activities for kids to experience but some of them were not working well or closed for maintenance.

Many displays were not working, in fact, there was hardly anything here. The ground floor is now more of a playground with only small sections that were truly 'science-y', and there was only one section open on the 1st floor with everything else EMPTY. This place used to be a lot better. It's more worth it to go to Petrosains... More

The place is worth for money to visit, location is strategic. The whole building is a lot of activity to play and discovery. One thing is when is raining, probably you will feel indoor is raining also...(water leakage in the building :-() Overall my kids is very enjoy for a few hours with playing routine games...

I've been to many Science centers in the U.S. and the National Science Center is equal in the number of exhibits and the quality of the exhibits. My children were entertained and enjoyed their time at the museum. We completed all of the activities on the first floor and half of the activities on the second floor. We'll go back... More

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
