Some of the museums in Hong Kong offer free entry on Wednesdays, do check out before you plan for the visit. I brought my 3 year old daughter to explore the museum. Many displays and demonstrations available at different timing. There is a play area for children which combines learning science with fun time. 1-2hrs visiting time should be sufficient.

Good for bringing the kids to there for a half day trip. Inside with spacious setting good for a relaxing visit. The exhibition inside is educational and both adult and kids may found it interesting. The book store is also a nice place to have a look, while the books inside you may find is a little bit expensive.

Just to add to my previous review of this museum, it's closed on Thursdays (a wasted trip for us!) and on Wednesdays it's free......which sounds good, but to be honest the entrance fee is quite low and I would rather pay that to avoid the massive crowds! There were people swarming over all of the exhibits, greatly detracting from our... More

We took two 10 year old grandsons and they had a wonderful morning in the museum. It is all interactive and a fascinating way to educate and interest children in science. It is located in Kawloon and easy to access by metro. It is next to the History museum if you still have some energy.

I remember visiting here as a kid and really enjoying it although memories are vague. I remember visiting as a teen and thinking the place had some cool things. It is now 2015 and the place is stuck in a 1990s time warp. Great for primary school visits and young kids that can learn from the wide range of small... More
