This isn't exactly the best space museum in the world. Small, somewhat uninspiring, and not really updated with recent changes in spaceflight. Even a space nut will be disappointed. It's surprising that there isn't more Chinese content in here. There's a planetarium and theatre here as well as museum exhibits on astronomy and spaceflight.

We only went to the exhibition and not a show so couldn't comment on them. Exhibition was small and uninteresting. Some interactive stuff to keep children busy otherwise there isn't much to keep you occupied. We went round the museum in about 20 minutes.

Interesting info and interactive stuff for kids. More for young families than older couples. There was a space-walking experience that kids will love!

HK space museum should only be on your list of places to see if you're spending more than 3-4 days in HK. Centrally located and easily accessible, you could combine the visit with a few other attractions like the avenue of stars, the light & sound show (if it's evening) and/ or a visit to the nearby museum of arts....

It's a space museum and the 9 and 10 year old we had with us enjoyed that part. It is dated (as other reviews have pointed out) and the line to wait for the interactive attractions are long. We read most of the signs and watched most of the videos and it took us only 2 hours to go through.... More

We went there to keep away from the rain. It was a detour from going to the Avenue of Stars, but, I'd say, it was great! My 2 years old son had fun; pressing buttons, watching how a rocket flies up, etc. We didn't go to the upper floor, because I think there's no life and we had a stroller.... More

I am still a bit surprise with the negative comments here, but I guess everyone has their own opinion. But for me, I didn't regret any seconds of my time here, how often can you see a space museum, spacesuits etc... I really enjoyed this museum, for HK$10 it is cheap and worth it. I even spent some time watching... More

I was fooled coming here because i thought it was more for adults but after purchasing tickets, i realized it was more for kids. ONLY go if you have children. The information was informative but it was very basic info about space. The "active" sections were mostly "out of service" so that was disappointing. Thank goodness the tickets were $10HK.
