The science museum is located on 8 acres of manicured gardens at Bukit Kiara in north-west Kuala Lumpur. The Centre contains over 1,000 interactive, hands-on exhibits arranged over 12 galleries which are designed to allow visitors to learn by experience.
What to Expect?
The Pusat Sains Negara is known for its distinctive architecture that has now turned it into a novel national landmark. Shaped as an aerodrome, it is four storied and similar to its cone topped by the geodesic dome. The PSN is made up of eleven galleries each with different themes that are further divided into two groups i.e. Basic Science and Technology. It deals with more than a thousand exhibits whose main objective is to inspire, encourage and excite visitors to have an interest in science and technology.
Some of the more interesting topics featured in the different galleries include thinking machines, future world, pathways to discovery, and environmental odyssey. Anyone taking a trip to the National Science Centre always comes out more informed than when they entered.
The other themes displayed at their respective galleries include; knowledge about biology, physics, chemistry, and astronomy that comes under the Pathway to Science gallery. The Pathways to Discovery gallery displays the process of data collection, how to analyze it and the interpretation. Also on display here are tools used in the science and archaeological findings.
It is housed in a green glass building topped with a geodesic dome which is illuminated in various colours at night.
The center is equipped with an Integrated Management System (IBMS) and has a two-level exhibition gallery space with an area of 6,717.6 square meters. In the center, there is a multimedia library, a science lab, three workshops, two auditorium and a multipurpose hall. Apart from indoor exhibits, visitors can also visit their outdoor park and a mini water park right beside the center.
The area surrounding the National Science Center's educational landscape theme and the main feature is an ecological landscape, herb garden and children's playground. The exhibits are available at the National Science Centre landscape focused on the physical and biological sciences as well as exhibits complement the gallery exhibition.
There is also pool area for outdoor splashing fun for the children.
They are also working on a few new exhibits and additional expansions and upgrades periodically, so there is more to look forward to as well.

Honestly to explore this place in just one day is impossible. It is spacious and it offers variety of discovery areas from prehistoric monuments to machine hands on. This is a must place for me to bring my son exploring gadgets and gizmos as he loves science and dinosaur so much every time we get a chance on school holiday. What I need is extra energy to walk around the area all day long ☺️

If you have never been outside of Malaysia then you will find this place ok because it is still better than many other museums and visitor centres in Malaysia.
You don't have to go very far. No need to go Japan , Korea or USA . If you have a passport, take a bus to Singapore and visit their science centre or museums. You will then see how people properly maintain facilities unlike here. I suggest not to bring overseas visitors here.
