We visited in April 2015. The museum has a huge number of displays - interactive too. Kids and adults can enjoy a good few hours here. We didn't get through the whole museum. Perfect for a wet day in Hong Kong, or to escape the heat. Very educational.

We spent hours in the Kong Kong science museum with our 2 sons and we all enjoyed it very much. There is a whole section with brain-teasers which is highly enjoyable for both kids and grown-ups. There is a giant and amazing energy machine which shows how balls can keep their kinetic energy. The rest of the museum is more... More

This exhibition is divided into Math, astrology, metrology, Medicine, timepiece and etc. You can see a lot of old but modern tools there.... More

Firstly, if you have kids then this you need to go to the science museum, there are so many interactive activities which are very educational as well as lots of fun. This is an extensive museum and there are loads of things to mess about with so you can easily spend up to three hours here. It is certainly a... More

This is absolutely a place for learning and pleasure for both adults and children. Be sure that you visit all floors. There are so many experiments that you can have hands on experience. And do not forget to bring along your camera when you come to the miracle mirrors. You must try the one that allow you to show only... More

Taken here because I was accompanying a friend. Science /science fiction is Not my thing.!!!( I am being honest, )but my friend could have spent hours here( 2 1/2 hrs to be precise) I excused myself, told him to phone me when finished, and found a restaurant close by after 20 mins?? Had something to eat, and read a newspaper!

My 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed the museum. Lots of hands on exhibits kept him engaged for hours. Probably not as exciting for older teens.
