Petrosains is like walking into a mad inventor's workshop. You would spend hours in there learning about space exploration, fossil fuel, oil rig operations, Formula One and so much more. It's the perfect place to break out your walking shoes without having to endure the Malaysian heat and rain (everything is indoors). Do visit if you are fond of solving... More

Though we had been to KL but always skipped this place thinking that this might be only some exhibition pieces of the petro science stuffs. However after seeing the reviews from Trip Advisor we thought to visit this place. You really need to have one entire day to visit here and has got a lot of activities and thrilling edutainment...

Kids will learn but it is also educational for adults especially the space stations, Mars, serves as a good science centre

This discovery centre is an amazing experience for kids (and adults). It is quite extensive, so you need at least 2 to 3 hours to really appreciate the exhibits. Go there early (it can get crowded around 10:30 am) and don't forget a warm jacket, as it is freezing cold inside (especially the 3D movie theater). Also, if you have... More

We visited with my kids and they had a great time. The wait was quite long and purchased express tickets to avoid the queue. Children had a great time learning a quite a lot of stuff in an interactive way. The personal employed here are helpful and know how to handle the kids and interact with them. IMO if you... More

Stumbled upon this while exploring Petronius tower - super find! There is a quirky entrance via a hydrocarbon molecule themed pod ride. There are substantial interactive displays - geology, space, exploration, economic use of oil and technology all covered intricately. A lot of investment and thought into stimulating young minds is apparent. As a Geography teacher, I would like to... More
