Spotlight: Dinosaur Encounter, Pusat Sains Negara

more on the topic

From the towering Tyrannosaurus to the majestic brachiosaurus, prehistoric creatures have captured the imaginations of children the world over for decades. While there are plenty of flicks and picture books that can teach your little ones all about dinosaurs, nothing beats visiting an indoor park filled with lifelike dinosaurs.

We went to visit Dinosaur Encounter at Pusat Sains Negara (PSN) on the soft opening day last Saturday. PSN was already packed to the brim with visitors queuing up to get their tickets when we arrived at about noon. Apart from parents with young children, there were also armies of school kids taken on a school trip to the PSN on that day. The rainy day didn’t seem to deter visitors from turning up at Dinosaur Encounter

The first of its kind in the country, Dinosaur Encounter is an indoor, edutainment park situated at Pusat Sains Negara. The park is divided into two sections. The first section is known as Adventure Walk. This section features an array of dinosaurs in their original size complete with movements and sounds.
