MinNature Malaysia which exhibits miniature models of buildings and interesting places is one of the latest attractions in Subang Jaya, Selangor. This attraction is the 3rd largest indoor miniature and train exhibition in the world.
This educational exhibition will help to enhance the learning about Malaysia as well as science & technology. Your children will have the opportunity to interact with miniature models of solar panels, moving trains and volcano. These interactive models have been fitted with lights, sounds and motors to make them more interesting.
You will be able to see the miniature train track in action at the press of a button. Village life scenes have been built to show the city folks how life is like in the rural areas. See also the miniature oil palm trees, rubber trees, refineries, ports for transportation of goods and the power plant to generate electricity.

According to Mr Chan Chee Wing, Executive Director of MinNature Malaysia, the 1:87 Ho scale is used to develop the models.
Most of the miniature parts that are exhibited here are printed on site before being assembled and touched-up for final use. The 3D printing technology is used to create the parts and as of today, over 1,600 kg of ABS materials have been used to print them.
If you are a student studying design related course, you can apply to do your internship here during your semester break. It will be a good experience as you learn how to design products that are useful for consumers to use.
