Brilliant! We found ourselves in Hong Kong on a miserable raining Winter day. With some doubts we took our three kids (15, 11, 9) to the science museum. The family had a great time. Virtually every single exhibit is interactive so it is very different to a stuffy, traditional museum. Highly recommended in a city which isn't the easiest with... More

I regularly travel to Hong Kong and this is one of the few attractions I had not visited. This is a superb museum (free entry on Wednesdays) with lots of hands on stuff for children. It was interesting for children and adults alike. It has a "special exhibit" which changes periodically. One of the best Science Museums I have been... More

Visited the museum on a Wednesday afternoon, it was really crowded and full of kids! Didn't really get the opportunity to explore everything as it was really crowded.. the museum was ok, but I think the museum next door, HK museum of History is more interesting! :p

The three levels of exhibits all incorporate interaction and as a teacher I was happy to bypass the many being used by children. There will be something here to interest most people - I enjoyed the optical illusions, mirrors and hands on problem solving tasks. The third floor has a dedicated section for children. Free entry on Wednesday does not... More

Education, entertainment, fun for kids and adults. A great choice for children any any, it has a special section for them to play with giant bubbles, floating balls and much more.. they learn a lot and love it. Don t waste your time in Disney, which is awful by the way, even the mini castle is a joke. Don t... More

This was the most brilliant hands on museum we've been to! Spent 5 hours there and could've done more! Get a wrist band to re-enter when you need a lunch break.

My Children (7y.o. boy and 4 y.o. girl) enjoyed this museum much more than any of the higher priced attractions in Hong Kong. We visited two days in a row for 4 hours each time. The space section was really weak. Entry fee was chicken feed.

The materials are dated and not extensive at all. Many demonstrations are not working. For a better museum, walk over to the Museum of History which is a stone's throw away.

I went there with my 6 years old daughter. Although, she enjoyed a lot, i felt that it would've been better if she understood the stuff a bit - so i guess a 10 year old kid would learn more. For her it was more like press this and the light will turn on, rotate this, touch this and so... More

Its a very good museum, with all demonstrations of different aspects of science. Lot new things to be known there. Even a good time for children. The entrance fee is also nominal.
