It is an elaborate science fair. Lots of experiments and stuff to read. I have been there once before, some 8 years ago and it is mostly the same. They will be renovating this museum along with the art museum towards the end of this year so I think we will have more to look forward to and another reason... More

Go on a Wednesday if you don't want to pay the nominal fee and you like crowds who feel the same. Unfortunately, there... More

Interesting exhibits especially the Qing exhibition currently on. You'll even see the bike ridden by the last Qing emperor Pu Yi! The interactive game allows you to ride a bike in the Palace Museum in Beijing, just like Pu Yi!

Excellent experience, near TST MTR station, great place to take kids at. Maybe best avoid weekend of kids holidays to ensure this is not too crowded.

The children were in 7th heaven and I had a great time too. Wednesdays are free. The demonstration was in Chinese only but there is so much to see and do.

If you value your sense of hearing! On Wednesdays all museums are free, we visited this one and it was full of children! I mean, you could hear it from the outside, their yelling! 1-10 year olds, all running, yelling, pushing every button possible, I had a headache in 10 minutes! The museum is nice and covers lots of topics... More

Place is a bit hard to get to as the nearest MTR station is Hung Hum. Located about 15 mins walk from station. Shares the same complex with the HK History Museum, entrance located opposite. Free entry every Wednesday. Lots of exhibits around communication, technology, physics, etc. Suitable for kids, students and the curious young adult. But not so interesting... More
