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

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
