Great for kids

Lots of interactive exhibits for the kids - particularly liked the hall of mirrors. So big you'll want to return!

We took two 10 year old grandsons and they had a wonderful morning in the museum. It is all interactive and a fascinating way to educate and interest children in science. It is located in Kawloon and easy to access by metro. It is next to the History museum if you still have some energy.

I remember visiting here as a kid and really enjoying it although memories are vague. I remember visiting as a teen and thinking the place had some cool things. It is now 2015 and the place is stuck in a 1990s time warp. Great for primary school visits and young kids that can learn from the wide range of small... More

Absolute joy to visit. It's so interesting and challenging also for grownups to study all what's been happening here! Definitely must!

Like any good science museum, most of the exhibits are aimed towards children or adolescents. Like any of the better science museums, the exhibits aren't so dumbed down that kids will walk out with a less functional knowledge of how a thing really works. About half the interactive exhibits were too dull to interest an adult with a background in... More

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.
