Without science, space travel would be impossible; flying to a different continent would be a pipe dream; and licking our own elbows would be considered an act of witchcraft. Today's Groupon makes modern advances with an entrance ticket for one person to Sultans of Science Exhibition at Petrosains, The Discovery Center, in Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur. Choose from:
- Ticket for 1 adult aged 18 and above for RM10 instead of RM20
- Ticket for 1 youth (13 – 17 years) for RM7.50 instead of RM15
- Ticket for 1 child (3 – 12 years) for RM5 instead of RM10
Fresh from its stint in Bangkok, the exhibition will be here until 15 June, 2013. Travel back to the Golden Age of the Islamic World (700-1700 CE), where ingenious Muslim scholars made scientific and technological breakthroughs that influenced modern society. Learn about the notable discoveries and inventions currently attributed to Western scientists that were in fact, first made by Muslim scholars and engage with the interactive exhibition, brought to life with cutting edge technology. Calling the PETRONAS Twin Towers home, the entrance of the science centre is located on the fourth floor of Suria KLCC mall, easily accessible via public transport like the LRT or GO-KL free city bus route, with ample parking spaces nearby.

Who is this man? What was his big contribution to science? Find out more at Sultans of Science!
It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's Abbas Ibn Firnas! He was a Berber born in Ronda, Spain. One day he launched himself, as you can see in the picture, from a hill near Cordoba and was the first human to experience the glorious freedom of flight. This multi-talented man was a famous polymath, inventor, physician, engineer and musician. For more, visit Sultans of Science at Petrosains!
His name is Al-Jahiz. A philosopher, poet, zoologist and a celebrated writer! What a diverse range of fields he studied. Do people still do that nowadays? He was a keen observer of the social and natural worlds. His most famous work was the seven-volume "Book of Animals". He also provided the first ideas on evolution by natural selection! From the 'Sultans of Science' exhibition.

It's probably one of the smaller museums I've visited, but all the exhibits are in excellent condition, and super fun. As the name suggests, it's a "petro" museum, with a focus on petroleum, its derivatives, and its uses in society. There's a racing section (think Petronas F1) and a mock oil platform/rig. – Mar 15, 2013
