The Petrosains Science Discovery Centre occupies levels four and five of the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur. It’s a fun and interactive science discovery center that focuses on the petroleum industry, yet embraces all the general sciences. Full of rides and unconventional exhibits, this is a family-friendly attraction that’s good for a few hours of fun-filled activities.
Since its opening in 1999, this hands-on interactive science museum has been popular with locals as well as international visitors. Arranged in an easy-to-navigate way, the center is divided into 11 main interactive galleries, showcasing everything from space age exhibits to fossils. It explores and explains science and technology in a fun and interesting style, with plenty of information on display for each exhibit.
A trip to the Petrosains Science Discovery Centre can be enjoyed as part of a Kuala Lumpur Petronas Twin Towers exploration tour. This combines a visit to the center with climbing the Skybridge that links the towers together, complete with sweeping views of Kuala Lumpur from the 86th-floor observation deck. It also includes visits to the onsite art gallery, and the exquisite 51-acre As Syakirin mosque.
Insider’s Tip: Weekends at the center tend to get busy. The best time to visit is on a weekday in the late afternoon when most of the school trips are over.
If not arriving as part of an organized tour, take a train to KLCC Station and head to the Petronas Twin Towers. The entrance to the Petrosains Science Discovery Centre is located on the fourth floor of the Suria KLCC shopping mall here.
