My family had a blast at this center for about 2.5 hours with us rushing along. Fun for the while family but certainly geared towards younger kids. If I were in my 20-30s without kids, I would probably avoid this place. The oil industry angle is obvious, but what would you expect being in the Petronas towers? I'd highly recommend... More

Travelling with three boys, this is a very good place to go. We spend more than three hours seeing and trying different science things. Entrance is inside the Petronas Towers.

A fascinating and well-maintained place enjoyable for young and old. But especially if you have kids, and more than one of them, as they can entertain themselves for hours in this place. It is great value for money at RM8 per child and RM20-30 per adult. And there's a handy food court outside, so you can duck out for lunch... More

Went there before the Raya break. Simple science experiments for the kids (both young and those young at heart) to try out & was informative. It would help to have more staff around to help explain things. All in all, well worth to visit and would definitely bring the kids there again.

Without prior research, we visited as an unplanned side trip to KLCC Suria / Petronas Twin Towers. For MYR 60 two adults, one child and one infant were allowed entry. After a long queue time we were transported inside on a unique ride and from there we spent several hours wandering about interacting with the various exhibitions. Staff were very... More

This is actually a good place to visit for kids who is ‘into school’ especially those who have ‘Science as one of their subjects’. The downside of our trip is that you do it at your own pace and time. Although at the beginning they (the staff) would handed you a one page sheet recommended flow of the trip (so... More

Its probably 15 years old but its worth a visit if you have kids and want a relief from the heat for 1/2 a day. my boy is six and loved pretty much all of it that's a pretty good feat to keep him entertained that long. not that expensive either under 50myr for 1 adult 1 child.
