We were quite disappointed with the Hong Kong Science Museum. It wasn't what we thought it would be. It is designed mostly for children, not for adults. It would be ideal to take your children there. It is priced quite well, air-conditioned and easy to find.

Let your kids learn most of the basic things of science by playing around with all the models and exhibitions. It is all fun. Those small fingers love to touch just about anything. It is not the best science museum however it is worth a visit. Free admission on wednesday.

I had the opportunity of visiting the museum, was a bit disappointed, not much to see and learn. I have seen better.

There aren't all that many things for kids to do in Hong Kong beyond the theme parks - this therefore makes it to the top of the very short list! Very interactive and much better fun than shopping! (so says a father of 2 who hates crowds!)

Good for growing kids, age 7 and above. Adults and teens having interest in science may enjoy the science models which are well done. The riddles are good but tough even for adults;) Our 5 yrs old son loved wandering here.

Took my 6 year old niece. Spent over 3 hours there. There are 3 floors. Well organised and spacious. Could've spent longer if there was a place to sit, eat and take a break before exploring again. 10 min walk from TST East MTR station. Very educational, though some parts were a bit dated. The electricity section and workplace safety... More

We go here every time we are in Hong Kong, my kids really love it here. There are lots of interactive displays, from bubble-making a cloud machine that blows smoke rings. We can spend 2-3 hours in here no problem, and the kids are completely occupied, running from one exhibit to the next. Great fun and a brilliant place to... More

This museum does its job well of catering for very young hong kongers on school trips. Really nothing of interest to the average tourist.

It was good. A 3 - storey building filled with tons of games, demonstrations and hands on opportunity for us to understand technology, effects of mirrors and many many more. The museum was staffed by friendly people who was able to share information with us. Seriously even the security guards were very friendly. In my opinion, it is better than... More

This is the best place to take your kids in HK if they like science and activities. Only trouble was they were not giving the demonstrations in english, only Chinese. lucky all other activities are also in english. Many puzzles, discovery and interactive stations to be had. plan to stay half a day.
