Pusat Sains Negara and Taman Prasejarah (Prehistoric Park)

Exploration, Kuala Lumpur

Each time I drive pass the Sprint Highway going towards Desa Hartamas, I would be drawn to rainbow coloured roof of Pusat Sains Negara (National Science Centre) on my right.

One weekend, I told myself I am so going to drive past and get a closer look at the building because it just looked so unique. As I turned into the Sprint highway exit with the signboard Pusat Sains Negara, I am first greeted by the Prehistoric Park (Taman Pra Sejarah).

The park is located outside near the entrance to Pusat Sains Negara.  I will get to the park later in the article.

Pusat Sains Negara:

I only managed to take photos of the building from outside. The colours are really attractive:

Prehistoric Park (Taman Alam Prasejarah) Pusat Sains Negara:

Back to the prehistoric park. If your kids love dinosaurs, go over there on a weekend evening (after it is not too hot)  for your kids to take pictures with the dinosaurs.

It is opened to public- because the area is not fenced up. Please don’t park your car at the roadside but instead turn into the Pusat Sains Negara- there are about 4 allocated parking before the entrance (if there is no parking, you can get drop off the passengers at the park while you drive up to find a parking).

According to the description plates located next to the dinosaurs, some are made life-sized to give you an idea on how huge the dinosaurs were:

Some of them which were supposed to be terrifying creatures during their existence, carried a more cute and less fearsome look:
