Kuala Lumpur, Petrosains Science Museum

Petrosains Discovery Center is a kind of Science and Technology Museum for children and adults. Although it looks more like an entertainment and educational center, rather than a classical museum. There are similar museums of entertaining Sciences in some Russian cities (called "Einsteinium", etc.), but the scale in ours is much smaller.

Exhibits here are various natural, physical, chemical, electrical and other phenomena. Here you can see and feel what an earthquake is on a special attraction, test yourself in turbulence, go underwater, meet dinosaurs and much more. It is especially good that all the exhibits are designed to be touched, tasted, experienced. In general, it will be interesting for both adults and children, but if you find yourself in Kuala Lumpur with children, then be sure to try to get here.

To visit Petrosains, it is better to allocate a few 2-3 hours or even half a day. There are no excursion groups here, you can move independently and do anything, the principle of operation of each exhibit is clear even without instructions. The principle of museum inspection is like an assembly line, i.e. you inspect one section of the exhibition, and then move to the next, and only so, all in sequence. As a rule, it is impossible to go back. The entire flow of visitors goes in one direction, and the exit is not where the entrance is. Several Entertainments during the inspection are available for an additional fee, but you can skip them, a lot of interesting things without them. After the exit, you can visit the store of entertaining science, which sells educational and informative children's sets for acquaintance with different phenomena.
