this building has a special shape. Kids would love playing the interactive activities inside. honestly the things inside are a bit old and they would renew bit by bit slowly. If you have the chance, also watch the movie there (of course you should check the theme is interesting or not). I like the imax movie!

We were there with a 5 yr old and a 6 yr old. Some of the displays were out of orders and there were groups of students visiting (a few groups). The museum isn't big so we gotta line up for quite a bit of time if we wanna test out the interactive features. The experiments are old. They also... More

I visited the Hong Kong Space Museum with my 9 & 7 year old kids. We found it not that interesting, most of the displays are quite old and bit boring and the place is quite dark. Many staff was there to operate various activities which were boring too! However staff was friendly and helpful. Admission is quite cheap compared... More

The Space Museum has a lot of interactive features and is, therefore, execllent for kids of all ages. It's educational without being overly didactic and should be visited by ALL visitors to Hong Kong. Its central Tsim Sha Tsui location is also a bonus !

Most of the exhibits are old. Small theaters with YouTube Videos. Some baby experiments (Press the button for...). It's not that big, an Hour and a half would be thoroughly enough. I went for a 3D show, which had cool effects, but poor movie (Dream to Fly). The ticket is $10 for Museum. and $34 for the 3D show.

Of the 6 admission-charging museums run by the Urban Council, this is the worst of the lot. Many of the exhibits are merely words explaining about astronomy (and much of this can be googled on line) and a lot of it is out-of-date. The few interactive exhibitions will inadvertently have a long line of kids waiting to use them. It... More

Space museum was a great way to kill a couple of hours, entry was very cheap but then there is not much to it! Got a little lost finding ticket box.. Also recommend checking what times it is open as they are not a 9-5 place!

I'm spoiled. I grew up going to NASA and the Johnson Space Center. I've also been to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (both on the mall and the hangar at Dulles). So, this was underwhelming to me. However, there is a lot of good hands on stuff to do and if you're not a space nerd like I am,... More

The Hong Kong Space Museum would be ok if you are trying to kill an hour of so during a rainy Hong Kong afternoon but otherwise, skip it. They have 3 movies that are also pretty decent but the museum itself is pretty small and only good if you have an older child that likes to read about space or... More

I must say that I am glad making the decision to visit HK museums on Wednesday, a free entrance admission day (usually it is $10 entrance fee). Honestly, the Space museum is kinda outdated and not so interesting! There are buttons to press around for visitors to have a better understanding of different theories... could be fun for the kids... More
