Spotlight: KidZania Kuala Lumpur

Award-winning Indoor Family Edutainment Centre

KidZania Kuala Lumpur is an interactive kid-sized city that allows children to try out different professions. These professions include doctor, engineer and dentist, among others.

Situated at Curve NX, Mutiara Damansara, KidZania welcomes children aged 4 to 14-year-olds to experience more than 100 potential hands-on, role-playing and dress-up activities. 

What can kids learn at KidZania? Experiential learning. They’ll learn through reflection on doing. They learn about the world of work. They learn to pilot aeroplanes. They learn to fight fires. They can perform surgery. They can mimic many activities done by adults in real life.

KidZania Kuala Lumpur offers experiential learning at its best. Children are encouraged to broaden their horizons and learn how to be self-sufficient and develop their own initiative to excel in the role-playing activities that we have created – KidZania Kuala Lumpur

Our unique approach to learning allows children to explore, aspire and to achieve. By immersing them into our simulated real-life occupations, they are encouraged to be reactive, learn the inner workings of an occupation and understanding financial aspects of earning a living – KidZania Kuala Lumpur

Essential Life skills

Each role-playing scenario at KidZania is designed to teach kids essential life skills, such as financial literacy, teamwork, critical thinking and independence.

These role-play activities, while it’s fun and imaginative, they also help enhance their social and emotional skills. Pretend play is important to child development and KidZania seeks to bridge the gap between schools and the outside world.

As a themed learning centre, we have since been certified as a co-curricular partner with the Ministry of Education Malaysia to collaborate on creating learning and teaching modules for both children and teachers. For example, children will learn to enhance their vocabulary in English apart from picking up essential skills at KidZania. It is our goal to increase literacy amongst children by using our experiential learning as a catalyst to encourage the curiosity of learning – KidZania Kuala Lumpur

What’s more, there are also packages for educational institutions who are interested to plan exciting and educational tours at KidZania. For help and enquiries, you may write to [email protected] or call 1300 13 KIDZ (5439). They will be more than happy to assist you.
