The National Science Centre is one of my favourite places to visit with my nieces and nephews, or to take visiting friends who have young children in tow. The exhibitions are fun & interactive, and there is plenty of space for kids to run around in, have fun, make new friends, learn things, and tire themselves out. I highly recommend... More

I've been here many times, and even its a little bit dated but still good, in my last time their, there is improvement by replacing the unworking machine in the first hall. I guarantee kids will amaze and will ask a lot of questions. The souvenirs shop is amazing, you must go and buy one of the grate scientific toy... More

This place is easily located but there is no public transportation, don't worry as taxi is aplenty. There are so many machines exhibitions that will make your children glued there for ages!! A good reception place that allows the parents to relax =p

School holidays, so we decided to take the kids here (looks really good) checked on the website to see if it was open. Yep no messages or notices online to tell if it was open or closed for the holidays. Even checked their calendar where there is a message saying that if it is closed on public holidays there will...

Located in a rather remote place, so it will be hard to find transport back if you don't have a car. Also, there might be an issue when you want to come here. Instead of saying "National Science Center Kuala Lumpur" you should say "Pusat Sains Negara" - correct me if I'm wrong...

The National Science Center is a great place to inspire young minds. The center does try to it's hardest to educate and share science with the public. Despite being dated and poor services, the resources and facilities are acceptable. Though they can do better by updating it's contents as technology is never ending and and we are learning new theories... More

Visited this place for the 1001 Inventions Exhibition. Enjoyed ourselves as a family but felt the space could have been better stocked with more exhibits. The live show was informative and entertaining as well. Should have more F&B options. Loved the kinetic garden.
