And yet the HK space museum isn't much. It's good enough to visit and learn about the history of space exploration if you have enough time and patience to read the posters and listen to the clips, but you could also do that by buying yourself a good book. I guess school kids won't be so bored visiting here, they... More

The museum itself is very outdated and not very interesting. However, kids might find it interesting and there is a decent planetarium showing scientific documentaries. Less than 1 hour here is all that's needed. Exhibits aren't anything special and not much you'll take away from the overall experience. Admission was cheap though, so it's one way to burn some time... More

We had just finished exploring the Avenue of the Stars along the Kowloon side of the Hong Kong waterfront and were in dire need of air-conditioning to escape the blazing heat. We had found a nice park to relax in the shade for a bit then walking down Salisbury Road we saw the Hong Kong Space Museum and went inside.... More

We went to the space museum today, with our kids (6 years old). Given the relatively low admission fee, it was okay (it was one of the 7 museums included in the weekly museum pass for $30HKD). The kids were mildly entertained by the different displays, where were quite dated. Since they were so young, they did learn a bit... More

Good for kids and a great learning experience for them with loads of interactive games. I was a bit bored but my daughter loved it.

I sat and jus stared at a 3d film about the universe for an hour and a half and I enjoyed every second of it. They give individual headphones for the duration of the film for english dubs for non-chinese speaking tourists. I love the store too.

Wow. Where do I begin?! Hong Kong Space Museum used to be the pride of museum curation and exhibitions in Hong Kong in the early 80's. I have fond memories of visiting the place throughout the 80's as a kid. I happened to be in Tsim Sha Tsui after ferry ride with my son and have a few hours to... More

Visited on a Saturday morning with my 2 year old daughter in tow. I was really hoping for interactive displays and lovely photos of what NASA showcases on Twitter and was of course bitterly disappointed. The displays had dirt gathering on them. Some of the buttons weren't working on certain interactive bits. I was hoping for stuff on the Curiosity... More

While the Hong Kong Space Museum is worth a visit, it is hardly a site that is at the top of the must-visit-when-in-Hong-Kong. This particular attraction is for a selected audience, and might not be interesting for everyone in the family. But if you like museums and find enjoyment in traversing museums during your travels, do make a swing past... More

You need to buy tickets to get in. They have theatres with various screening. Worth a visit lots of space things and you can interact with some. plus it has a/c.
