Petrosains: The Discovery Centre for the whole family

Petrosains: clearly not a new kid on the block but it is a popular tourist attraction for both the young and old for a very good reason!Although this is one of the obvious places to visit with children, we’d never done it! Why? Because if I’m honest, I always see queues of people waiting to get in and that has always put me off!

However, fear not! I can now confirm that a) the queue is worth it, and b) the queue is only to get in; once you are inside, the place is so huge that you don’t queue again for anything – phew!

Located in Suria KLCC at the Petronas Towers, this Science Discovery Centre is the definition of ‘hands-on’ and will guarantee you hours of uninterrupted fun. 

Your little ‘oil-drop’ car that will take you on a journey into the discovery centre itself
 

The queue to get in is caused by the fact that you wait to take your very own oil-drop car on a darkened railway track that transports you slowly through images of the Malaysian rainforest and mountains accompanied by a sound and light show which finally arrives at the entrance to the centre.  

The most hands-on experience you will find in KL!
 Once inside you get to wander at your own pace and to discover a never-ending display of experiments and interactive exhibits.  
It’s me! become an astronaut during your visit!
 

With different zones to experience you get to learn about space, walk through a world of dinosaurs and volcanoes, understand the workings of an oil rig and test run your way on to the Petronas Racing circuit 😉

 There are helpful staff stationed around the different activities who guide you through certain experiments or give science demonstrations.

 There’s a 3D cinema, a children’s play zone, a cafe and a fun gift shop with original toys, books and souvenirs, and so much more.  
On your marks, get set, GO! Take a spin in a Petronas racing car!
 Don’t make the mistake of thinking you’ll pop in for a quick visit – cos you’ll be there for hours!!! We’ve finally experienced what Petrosains has to offer and can understand all the hype! A very worthwhile visit, S x
