I watched my son being fascinated for 4 h without any break time! I call that a massive win! There are tons of hands on opportunities (though I saw many other kids whisking through those in high speed, pushing buttons, throwing levers and not really paying attention to what it does and why) ... the fun with mirrors exhibit is...

It is a great adventure to find out so much about the world around using experiments and exhibits!! A must for families with children! However grownups will definitely enjoy it as well. Buy a monthly or yealy museum pass so you can enter exhibition as well. It is worth it if you do your maths right ;) but even a... More

Went to the science museum many years ago and was fascinated by the exhibits. On this occasion i was disappointed as many of the great basic science exhibits (e.g. pertaining to sound, waves and pressure) have disappeared and there are more exhibits regarding computers now. However its a very cheap entry fee ($30) and free on wednesdays so good for... More

We visited on a Wednesday - which happened to be "Free Day". With that added bonus we set about enjoying the museum which had dozens of hands-on, well set up displays. The kids (aged 3 and 6) had a ball here. We spent about an hour but could easily have had longer. A great way to fill in a morning... More

According to my 3-year old, it's the best place she's been to ever! Not Disneyland for her, but this museum. A lot of hands on and interactive activities that children can enjoy especially if child is inclined to science. Glad we went,it made our.child sooooo happy.

I am a scientist and I was excited that, during a brief pass through Hong Kong, I would get a chance to see the Science Museum. I admit to being disappointed, it was mostly "gee whiz" science, hands on wow stuff suitable for ages 5-15 (probably a bit juvenile for the 15 year olds too. Had I had my kids... More

Ensure you check internet for the opening hours and admission fee before you come. This place is average and should not be the high priority in your travel plan. Free admission on Wednesday, but don't come on that day. You will regret if you come during "Free" admission time because there will be very...crowded and it will be occupied by... More

A good place to visit if you are planning to visit the history museum as they are just next to each other. On wednesday the entrance is free but some of the place need different ticket. Good place to visit with kids or those young at heart. Love the mirror hall inside.

A really great museum, spent several hours. Many interesting exhibits. Better than science museums near my home in US. Very reasonable, only 25hkd. Nice gift shop, no pushy behavior. Good place for all ages.

I stopped in here simply because the Museum of History was closed. As an older adult, it was only of minor interest and I walked through the whole thing in about 10 minutes. If you're traveling with kids or young teens, this would be a wonderful experience with several floors of hands-on exhibits. Exhibits were available for a wide range... More
