Went on a wet day, free day (Wednesday) morning. Quiet as term time. Well organised, fascinating especially the puzzles. Best of all - the giant marble run. A must see place.

The HK Science Museum is a great, hands-on way to see a number of different scientific concepts demonstrated in interesting displays. Although the museum is not very large, the exhibits can keep you interested for a few hours of your day. Also, best to remember that entry to the museum is FREE on Wednesdays so really there is nothing to... More

This is one of the best science museums I've been to in the world. There are countless interactive displays, exhibits and movie rooms. You can try a human sized hamster wheel, lie on a bed of pins or charge your phone by spinning a wheel. There is a very strong emphasis on the environment; an exhibition about plastic litter, recycling... More

Unfortunately, the high-rated top floor exhibits was closed, and another half floor was being renovated. Thus only spent an hour here. Lots of kids when we visited over the weekend. The mirror maze was a hit. Look forward to visit again when the entire museum is open.

We spent around 2hrs in here and felt it to be too less. The place is very interesting. Theres something for each age group. The concepts of science have been explained in very simplified manner! There are many sections, All very interesting. All of us (kids and adults all) loved it.

Went here when there was free admission in Jan 2016. Didn't know it was free till we got there- luckily! Very uninteresting exhibits, needs an overall- been to many other museums around the world that were much better than this. Can't complain since it was free- we were in /out under 1.5 hr

We were there on a rainy day with our 8 y.o.. It was good as a place to retreat from the weather and it was free in January. But we expected for more based on the reviews.We felt it is a bit dated( especially the basement floor) and not too much to experience. We've seen better museums in other countries.... More

Surprise that it was loads to do; you could easily spend hours in there. Retain your tickets should you need to leave and come back in after a cup of coffee/ lunch.
