National Science Centre
Experience a scientific journey within this huge green dome-shaped building. The center features many exciting hands-on interactive science exhibits, which are divided into nine different galleries. The journey into this futuristic four-storey complex begins with a walk through an overhead tropical freshwater aquarium, followed by the Environmental Odyssey unravellings the threats faced by our tropical environment. Children will find delight in the Children's Exploration Center. Among other facilities are a multimedia library, auditoriums, a cafeteria and a Science Shop.
8 steps up to the main entrance, and no ramp. Outside in the "butterfly enclosure" (after descending another steep staircase) we saw only 3 butterflies! The kids liked feeding the rabbits but they looked as though they needed more food and care - others were caged up in cement floor cages and it was not clean at all. The emu also looked skinny and unwell.
Inside the main building the fish tanks are very nice and there is a children's playroom which has a good variety of toys for the little ones. So, probably worth the entrance fee of $4 ringgit.
The exterior gardens (dinosaur models) are not being maintained which is a shame as they would look quite nice if clipped properly. Unfortunately, the maintenance did not improve once inside the museum itself. So many of the displays did not work, and if they did were generally pretty ordinary. Another bad aspect is the parking, which is not onsite and if it's raining (as it was when we went) only part of the walkway back is undercover. The staff were friendly enough but did not explain any of the exhibits nor did they seem interested in them at all. The Petrosains museum in KLCC is so much better. The only good thing about this museum is the price, RM12 for 1 adult and 2 children. Only if you are in area and have nothing better to do.
I brought my daughter here and we were aghast at the level of upkeep and the professionalism of its staff. Customer service is questionable, I guess.
However because my daughter enjoyed herself, I am forced to admit that it has its advantages.
I honestly feel the mgmt should take good care of the place and maintain a steady promotion of activities for children and parents - stimulating the interests.
Or else, this is going to fall down as a white elephant.
