Last day of the event...animatronics were good. Lots of play and learn activities. Great for kids. Especially the permanent exhibits.

A good science museum. It has various section of science and also good for educating children. We really liked the sci fi section wherein all modern science gadgets are shown. The different aspects of science really added to the enjoyment. It is has very well connectivity. A good place for children enjoyment. We also purchased toys based on science theme.... More

Huge museum, roughly four floors. The giant Dinosaurs were great fun! We went on a Wednesday and entrance was free. The Science Museum has been around for a while, I think they were doing some much needed renovation work, but it did the job for us. If you have kids with you, definitely bring them here it' make them happy!

The museum is developing and is well organised on 4 floors with easy access to each. Most impressive were the interactive displays with queues of Chinese children keen to use and learn. Very different from most countries we have visited. The number of displays covers a range but is relatively small. When visited large moving models of dinosaurs were outside... More

I'm giving this review two stars not because it's a bad museum, but the whole place is definitely geared towards KIDS. As a young adult visiting the museum with other young adult friends, we didn't find the museum as amusing or interesting as we had hoped. I DO however recommend you to visit if you have small children. Covering several... More

This is one of a must see museum in Hongkong. No entrance fee for certain days. Not sure why most of the museum in Hongkong are for free every Wednesday.

After having visited the London Science Museum and knowing Munich's Deutsches Museum inside out, I decided to have a look at the competition in Hong Kong. I did not bother reading something about the Science Museum before actually going there, so I was in for a surprise: The whole place is a giant playground for kids, everything is blinking and...

Either by coincidence - or by being rather stingy - we went on a Wednesday and it was therefore free for the general section of the museum i.e. all the normal 'science' bits. As other reviewers have commented, for the special/extra exhibitions i.e. the dinosaurs in this case - you still had to pay an entrance fee. It wasn't a... More
