Petrosains PlaySmart

Bringing awe-inspiring science exhibits to the local communities.

We believe that everyone deserves high quality science-related educational activities and programmes. This is where Petrosains PlaySmart comes in.


The Petrosains PlaySmarts and the Petrosains Maker Studios in Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu, and Kuching will continue to CLOSE TEMPORARILY until further notice. This is following the extension of Phase One of Movement Control under the National Recovery Plan, which was announced by the Government to help steer the country out of the pandemic. It is expected that all economic sectors will be able to resume operations in Phase Three of this plan.

We will assess the COVID-19 situation and shall provide further updates on the re-opening date of the Petrosains PlaySmarts and Maker Studios once all restrictions have been lifted.

We regret any inconvenience caused due to this. During the temporary closure period, we will continue to exercise precautionary measures required. We hope to be able to safely operate soon and look forward to welcoming visitors back to our premises.
