My Children (7y.o. boy and 4 y.o. girl) enjoyed this museum much more than any of the higher priced attractions in Hong Kong. We visited two days in a row for 4 hours each time. The space section was really weak. Entry fee was chicken feed.

The materials are dated and not extensive at all. Many demonstrations are not working. For a better museum, walk over to the Museum of History which is a stone's throw away.

I went there with my 6 years old daughter. Although, she enjoyed a lot, i felt that it would've been better if she understood the stuff a bit - so i guess a 10 year old kid would learn more. For her it was more like press this and the light will turn on, rotate this, touch this and so... More

Its a very good museum, with all demonstrations of different aspects of science. Lot new things to be known there. Even a good time for children. The entrance fee is also nominal.

This Museum is very modern in that it is very hands-on throughout. Great for children and adults alike. Regular demonstrations as well. Nominal entrance fee

Spent 4 hours in the museum with our 4 and 7 years old and had to leave because they were tired... But had to drag them out. They loved it. All exhitions are hands-on and grouped by theme, from electricity to transportation to optics. They can play, experiment and learn. Impressive is the worlds tallest "energy machine". Also the live...

They say it's for all ages but it seemed to be aimed more at children 10 and under. Other than that it was good, the ball machine is amasing.

I visited with my 4.5 yr old son and he absolutely loved it, there is a lot to see but particularly to-do that he was running around non stop for 2 hours. We went during the week so only some schools visiting but the museum is so large everyone has plenty of space. The centerpiece is a marble-course in the... More

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...

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
