Do you find it almost too hot to wander outside? Unless your kids are early risers who enjoy the cool breeze in the morning – mine are not -, indoor fun options might be the thing for you and your family.
KL offers so many indoor options for kids! You do not always need a reason to do some activities inside, right? We’ve cherry picked the best indoor options here for you. Have a browse through and we hope and trust your family will have a great time!
Nice and easy
For the younger ones and their parents, here’s a list of a few activities in KL that are soothing for the soul, calming for the mind and inspiring for the senses.
Pottery classes at Taoyi studio
This studio in PJ offers pottery classes for kids with steady – and less steady – hands. Adults are welcome too! Have a look here at our review.
Family friendly cinemas
There are a few cinemas in the Klang Valley which cater for young ones. Crying, laughing, screaming (not too loud, please), anything goes at these theatres. Check them out here.
The new library in Seremban
Hello little (and bigger) book worms… This new library in Seremban offers everything you’re looking for. Need a break from reading while you’re there? Can, in the huge kids activities area! Parents will appreciate the adult lounge.
A doctor, a dentist, or an actor on stage? The sky is the limit! Your child will love to explore any kind of future jobs, and Kidzania is a must-do. If you’ve got older kids who can venture by themselves, you’ll find the ‘adults only’ lounge a nice break from the crowd.
National Bank of Malaysia
Pecunia non olet? Find out at the museum of the National Bank of Malaysia. The purpose of the Museum is to educate the public on Malaysia’s economy and economic history. The folks at Bank Negara have managed to successfully turn a dry topic into something fun and fascinating! More info here.
