Model of an Oil Rig

Petrosains, The Discovery Centre is located on the fourth floor of the Suria KLCC shopping mall. This 70,000 square foot science centre by Petronas in Kuala Lumpur provides an engaging look at various interesting science topics related to energy and oil. The attraction is highly recommended for those visiting Kuala Lumpur with children.

Multimedia Presentation on the Dark RideTo enter the Petrosains galleries, visitors will need to get into an oil drop-shaped transporter. This Dark Ride takes visitors on an audio-visual presentation through the Malaysian Rainforest and images of Malaysia as an introduction to Petrosains.
