I went with my daughter, a seven year old. We both enjoyed the place. A few "do by yourself" items attracted my daughter. There was a show - not extraordinary but impressive. It may take around one and a half hour to two.

Great things kids can learn and experience. All age groups can enjoy and play. Food is not good. You will need 3+ hours to complete it.

The Centre is worth visiting for increasing inquisitiveness about science and its development among children as well as adults. But it requires maintenance immediately. Though there are several activities in which a person gets engaged and learns a lot. The children really enjoys 3D movie...More

Travelling from Bukit Bintang to PSN (1 Replies)
Hi can anyone tell me how to get to National Science Centre at Bukit Kiara by bus from Bukit BIntang? Also, is it possible to walk from Chow Kit to Stadium Titiwangsa? Any bus?

Hi Get monorail from Bukit Bintang to KL Sentral, then catch the RapidKL bus NoU83 on the KL Sentral - Kompleks Kerajaan Jalan Duta route to the PSN. It is also a long walk to get from Chow Kit to Titiwangsa Park, so unless you like doing really long walks, then no not really.
Driving direction to Lake Garden & NSC please..... (3 Replies)
Dear experts, I need help to drive from Puchong to Lake Garden, and also from Puchong to National Science Centre. It seems like it is very difficult to go by public transport, or difficult to get a taxi back from there, and too expensive to use hop on hop off bus for a family of 6 persons. Thanks again.

Hi there. Travelling with kids definately is a challenge!:) Truthfully, there isnt much to see at National Science Centre and i felt that it was seriously a waste of time .If you are visiting the PetroSains, the National Science Centre would be at the 'kindies level' compared to Petrosains:) No comments on the Islamic Arts Museum coz never been there. KL BIrd Park is definately a YES!I enjoyed it much too.The Orchid Garden & Butterfly Park is nearby so you might want to visit...More
