This Museum grabs your interest from the moment you enter until the time that you leave. All the exhibits are in very good condition and there are many which are interactive.

This was one of the first things I did on my recent trip to Hong Kong to try to get rid of my jet lag from a 12 hour flight. Being 31 and mildly interested in science I thought I would give it a go. Alarm bells should have been ringing, as there were about 50 primary school children lining... More

We visited with 3 children aged 10, 9 & 7. I think we were all expecting to be blown away, but maybe our expectations were too high. Great for a couple of hours if the weather is bad, sadly we came away without the awe & wonder we were hoping for.

On a Wednesday in the school holidays you can expect it to be very busy. It's definitely aimed primarily at children, though some of the science will probably stretch most adults. It's worth paying extra to view the current special exhibition of Western Scientific Instruments of the Qing Court, a fine collection of items, costing only HK$10 on Wednesday, and... More

This museum is directly across from the Hong Kong History Museum and is perfect for kids. Almost all exhibits are hands-on, interactive displays. Kids will love pressing the buttons, getting items/machines to work, and seeing exhibits being turned on (example: giant marble maze seen running thru the museum). Check the schedule, but Wednesdays appear to usually be free admission days.... More

It doesn't seem to have gotten very positive reviews on here comparative to other things we've been to of equal awesome. But I really enjoyed the science museum. And that's coming from someone who doesn't normally enjoy museums. Really affordable entry. And soooooooo big! We didn't get to look around the whole thing, key reason being, we got hungry a...

I've been to science museums all over the world. and this one is above average. The families here are primarily with elementary school children, although a lot of the exhibits are geared towards older children. Explanations are in Chinese and English everywhere. Unlike some other hands-on museums I could mention, the crowd here is polite and (relatively) quiet, even when... More

Visited the museum while walking around TST, mainly to get away from the Sun. Was a great decision. The Western Scientific Instruments of the Qing court is a limited time exhibition running up to 23rd of September 2015. This special exhibition is magnificent! Instruments ranging from astronomy to anatomy, medicine, mathematics, weapons and time pieces line the halls behind glass... More
