I'm over the moon when I had my first moment there. As a must-OOTD person, I enjoyed taking photos in every spot here, and not to mention, this place is very suitable for all regardless of age. The staff around the exhibit are generally very friendly and multilingual. This is a 'MUST' place to be visited if you happen to be in Penang. Out of all, Tech Dome Penang is really an interesting educational exhibit.

Located at the capital of Penang, Tech Dome is a hidden gem for penangites and tourists to explore besides other extravagant places around the wondrous city of George Town. It is near by The TOP Penang Theme Park at the building of Komtar. The location is so easy to access by public transportation too! So if you want to explore more during your staycation at the 'Pearl of the Orient', don't forget to visit Tech Dome Penang. 🔭🎨✨

We've been several times, this is a lot of fun for children and accomodates a wide variety of ages. The additional precautions due to the pandemic are a bit of a pain but completely neccesary. The staff on hand around the exhibit are generally very good and multilingual.

It's not on the same level as Petrosciens in KL but for a Penang attraction this is really rather good.

Tech Dome Penang is a good educational place for people to visit. It has more than 150 interactive exhibits to interact with. The exhibits are fun and it also provides education to us. It is a "MUST" place to visit when you come to Penang.

We spent a morning at the Tech Dome and really enjoyed it. There are heaps of hands on activities and information. Our children (9 and 11) really loved it. We went to the local food court for lunch then came back and spent another hour or so there.

Went to Tech Dome on the 1st day of our arrival in Georgetown and we definitely enjoyed ourselves. Loads of things to do and try, even my 4-year old had fun running around trying everything. Think we might've spent close to 3 hours before heading out. Definitely an afternoon well spent.
