    Worth a visit. Bought tickets online before going. They take you to the bridge then up near the top floor. Once you've taken photos and saw the view a few times there's not much else really. A scale model of the city and an overview of the towers history and its time to go back down, but worthwhile for the price.

    Very nice experience. Mr Wong, our tour guide was very clear in his explanation. The centre also gave us a good chance to explore even though we came akready a bit late. Thank you so much!

    Good to have some green space in the middle of the crowded city. The ideal place to take photos of the Petronas towers.
    Not very big, but enough to walk around and have a little bit of "fresh" air. Huge playground. Many shaded places to sit.

    It doesn't appear to be a big museum at first glance, but it has so many beautiful things to see in each gallery. It's impossible to appreciate everything in just one visit of 2-3 hours! Items from from all around the world in both the permanent and temprary exhibits. Plus there was one special exhibition of local artists. Very informative explanations throughout. So much to learn!

    The building itself is beautifully designed, full of natural light in the atrium, and some exquisite ceilings.

    A very inexpensive museum considering the large amount to see and the very pleasant atmosphere - MYR 20.

    Not crowded despite a public holiday.

    Good restaurant, though pricier than average.
    Large gift shop.
    Toilets clean and with toilet paper.

    Main downside is that it's not easy to get to via public transport and walking (similar to many other places in Kuala Lumpur). The air conditioning inside the museum is reward for walking the long distance to get there!

    Arguably one of the best attractions of Kuala Lumpur!

    We visited the tower as part of an overall excursion, to make sure we did the Batu caves as well. Its not quite as iconic as Petronas but still offers some fantastic views. You can see Petronas from the observation deck, but only at an angle. It offers fantastic views all around and is well worth a visit. Tickets are probably to be booked in advance, it was fairly busy but minutes not hours to wait.

    A fabulous place full of models of great intricacy lovingly created and well maintained.

    The museum is excellently laid out and thoughtfully presented and very much worth a visit.

    I knew coming here, it would not be a match to Bird Paradise in Singapore. But i enjoyed it nonetheless. Birds are free to fly around. There are tons of peacocks wandering about, but it must have been molting season as the peacocks were dropping their feathers. The weather was incredibly hot in early April, we had gone morning when to be done by noon . You can walk under the shade of the trees which were plenty.

    The only negative is that we noticed holes in the nets in some areas which would enable birds to either escape or enter the aviary. It does look run down in some parts. The ostrich section was abit sad, vegetables were left in a basket so visitors could feed it, there was no one manning the place.

    Huge mall!
    A lot of high end stores. Not for the budget traveller, but still some options for them also. Nice looking mall. Plenty of places to eat. Next to KLCC PARK and right under the Petronas towers.
