As a true Malaysian, how well do you know about your beloved country? With so many public holidays and Malaysia Day coming up, it’s time for you to explore more on our own tourist spots! Not only that they’re fun to experience, you can get to three different places for under RM30 with MyKad prices~
1. National Planetarium
If you’re a fan of astronomy, you must visit our National Planetarium as the exhibition is free of charge. Visitors will be able to learn more about the wonders of galaxy and spaceships.
Also, those who want to challenge themselves can try the space pod ride with a 360-degree turn. Sitting in an enclosed pod with a screen right in front of you, it aims to simulate the feeling of staying in outer space. There’s even an emergency stop button at the side, so it must be quite tough!
Moreover, all visitors can also enjoy the planetarium shows in the dome theatre which is big enough to fit in 200 persons.
Younger children can also spend time at the anti-gravity room where they have to walk past the slanted floor to exit through the slide.
Tuesday – Sunday | 9 am – 4.30 pm
Monday | Closed

Address: Planetarium Negara, Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi, 53, Jalan Perdana, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

2. National Museum
National Museum may sound very boring to most of us, but it’s worth going to understand more about your own country. I can assure you that it’s definitely better than flipping through the Sejarah textbooks.
If you don’t feel like reading the explanations on the walls and boards, they can provide you with an interpreter to guide you along the way.
Starting from the days before humans existed to the present when we live with norms and culture, there are ancient rocks, tools, traded goods and costumes exhibited in the halls.
9 am – 6 pm daily

3. National Science Centre
The National Science Centre should be listed as a must visit place for Malaysians as there are countless interactive activities and learning opportunities inside. The roof has just been renovated into colourful panes too~
Their exhibition is divided into indoors and outdoors, but it’s so huge that you won’t be able to finish everything in one day.
One of the examples of the indoor exhibition would be mind challenging games such as 3D Sudoku, ropes and ring puzzles. There are also upside down rooms, instruments and mirror maze for visitors to have firsthand experiences on science.
Both children and adults will be amazed by the magic of science!
