This is a museum for children and adults, everybody can learn something, I learned there is a Morse alphabet for Chinese characters. Not huge as other science museums in the world, but manageable. Clear panels in Chinese and English. Wednesday free. Other days 10 Hobg Kong dollars. Couple this visit with adjacent Museum of History.

I spent a Wednesday visiting museums in Hong Kong (the day itself is important because the museums had free entry that day) and I called it the Great Museum Expedition. I visited the Flagstaff House Museum of Teaware, Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong Museum of History, and the Hong Kong Space Museum. Right across the sidewalk from the Hong... More

It is good place for kids and unlike traditional museum, most of the exhibits are interactivity that mean you can "play" with the exhibits. You will take much more time to queue and kids running around you on Wednesday since it is free entry.

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
