Why Petrosains Science Discovery Centre is special ?

Petrosains is a Science Discovery Centre that uses a fun and interactive approach to tell the story of the science and technology of the energy industry. The sequence of the exhibits in Petrosains traces the evolution and scientific relevance of the energy industry while also focusing on general science and its application to everyday life. The hands-on approach adopted by Petrosains puts an emphasis on the fun and excitement of learning rather than on the rigorous memorisation of scientific facts.
Petrosains Sdn. Bhd. was incorporated to extend PETRONAS’ commitment as a socially responsible corporate citizen in providing a rich and stimulating environment aimed to enhance science literacy and instill in Malaysians a passion for acquiring scientific knowledge.
Petrosains is housed in the PETRONAS Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur. Occupying level 4 and 5 of both Tower 1 and Tower 2 of the Twin Towers, Petrosains covers a total exhibit area of more than 7,000 square metres. Entrance to Petrosains is through Level 4 of the Suria KLCC mall.

Make sure you have a whole day for this one!! My husband and our son just couldn't have enough of this place. Lots of things to do and experience. You can easily spend a whole day there, especially for kids.

Our family of four, including two girls aged 8 and 12, thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Petrosains. We were surprised at the quality of the exhibits and the many hands on activities, including many where the staff demonstrate and encourage participation. The staff were fantastic, There are several optional activities for an additional fee - but these are very reasonably priced at no more than RM3. Otherwise the entry fee is comparatively low and represents excellent value for money. Allow time to properly explore all of the exhibits and you will not leave disappointed.

This was not even on our list of things to do/see. We came across it while we were in the Suria KLCC and we enjoyed our visit to this attraction.The entry fee is very modest and when compared with the Aquaria, this is a far better bet in terms of fun.What makes this attraction good is the presence of a large number of 'interactive/hands-on' activities. Our 7 year old daughter simply could not get enough of this experience.The 'hurricane booth' is interesting and the wind generated was strong enough to knock my glasses off and out the booth.There are a number of 'play and learn' kind of activities which keeps kids occupied.It must be pointed out that the attraction is dated but the fun nature of the activities makes up for this.
