Growing Scientific Minds


Tech Dome Penang provides people from all walks of life a platform for discovering the wonders of science and technology.

Tech Dome Penang is listed on the top five science museums in Malaysia, along with the Petrosains Science Discovery Centre, Agro Technology Park, Aquamarine and Marine Museum, and the National Science Centre.1 It is an initiative conceived by the Penang state government, in response to the advent of Industry 4.0.
