Malaysia's interest in space programmes is on the rise. This planetarium, then, is a measure to get people interested in space-related events and progress. There's a sense of carefully disorganised earnestness about the exhibits inside this Islamic architecture building. A grand staircase in the Lake Gardens leads you in to the doors. Inside, you will find:

  • Replicas of ancient astronomical observatories such as Stonehenge, or the Indian Jai Singh Observatory.
  • The space suit of Malaysia’s first astronaut, and his pack meals.
  • A giant space theatre that screens movies and documentaries.
  • Arianne IV space engine: the model used to launch Malaysia's first satellite, MEASAT 1, into space.
