It formally opened on 29 November, 1996 by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. The centre is located in Bukit Kiara.
This striking green domed building that houses the National Science Centre (PSN) is an architectural marvel. It accommodates nine galleries, with exhibits on interesting scientific themes.
There is also the Science Educational Park which provides hands on learning for students. Animals such as ostrich, ornamental chickens, rabbits, deers and others can be found in the park.
There is also an underwater walk-through aquarium as well as an inventor’s corner for budding minds. It is hoped that the centre’s exhibits will help nurture a life-long interest in sciences for all ages.
The National Science Centre (PSN) is a non-formal educational institution under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.
Opening hours: Sat to Thurs 9 am to 5 pm. Closed on Fridays.
