The National Science Centre was
established in 1996 to promote greater understanding and interest in
science and technology. It provides an aptly futuristic setting for
nine galleries depicting various scientific exhibitions.
Located in a harmonious and attractive environment, Bukit Kiara,
Kuala Lumpur, this new national landmark has a unique architecture
that resembles a truncated cone capped by a geodesic dome. The
National Science Centre, an institution of informal learning, was
entrusted with the mandate to promote awareness, appreciation,
interest and understanding of Science and Technology.
The Centre houses many different exhibits designed to stimulate,
excite and encourage visitors to take an active interest in Science
and Technology. The exhibits located in various galleries are based
on different themes, which can be categorised into two groups,
'Basics Sciences' and 'Technology'. The overall concept of the
Centre is to link science to environment and religion, as well as to
relate science with all aspects of life, knowledge and applications
in our daily life.
Among the fascinating themes featured in the exhibition galleries
are an environmental odyssey, pathways to discovery, future world
and thinking machines.
Children will find delight in the Children's Exploration Centre.
There are also observatory with a 14-inch telescope and viewing
gallery with binoculars.
