The museum is geared towards children, which would be a fantastic destination for an elementary school trip. However, it may be the saddest science museum I have been to. There are several interactive displays, but overall poor quality of museum pieces.

The building certainly looks interesting and it makes the science center inside looked promising. Unfortunately we were very disappointed with the functionality of the exhibits and the lack of manpower. About half of the exhibits are not functioning - many touchscreens are unresponsive and many games and displays lack clear instructions and manuals. There are some experiment rooms which are...

It is like other science museums. It provides hands fiddling experience especially for kids and alike. Its good for both playing & learning. Small cafe & McDonalds on ground level. We didn't try the 2D or 3D planetarium but it looks entertaining though.

A place of learning science by experience. A kids oriented science education ground while the adults may learn a few things as well.

Who would visit Macau and go to a science center?? can be avoided. Just a building to prove that Macau is much more than Gambling. But don't think it has proven its purpose.

Many of the exhibits are not functioning properly. However the simulation of the upcoming LRT is facinating.

In a city that doesn't really try to attract children the science center is a breath of fresh air. My daughter of 8 was quite intrigued by many of the interactive displays and I had a go at a few myself, especially the space, water and musical displays. The only downside was a few of the space displays were broken... More

We were pleasantly surprised to learn of the Science Center in Macau. The children had a great time and learnt a lot. It also shows the softer side of Macau because its not all about glam, glitz, gambling, or the other stuff. Great place to take the kids for the afternoon. They'll have fun and be in good company.
