When you travel to Macau with kids, not many places suitable for them (casino being the centre attraction for most tourist), but the Science Centre definitely 'the' place for them. With minimal entrance fee, the kids can spent the whole day (or at least half a day) going through all the levels, learning while having fun indoor, fully air-conditioned.

This is a huge and diverse science museum that's mainly aimed at young people. It's probably a good way to keep a family amused for a day. There's a McDonalds on the premises, toilets, and everything is inside! Good for a bad weather day. The centrepiece of the museum is a full-size replica of a Chinese Shenzhou spacecraft complete with... More

To be honest there are not many places to kids in Macau, thanks to Macao Science Center, my kids spent the whole day playing and watching, they simply had so much fun. It is huge and there are many interesting and educational activities for kids as well.

We were in Macau for a month and visited this many times. The architecture is wonderful and there is so much to see. You need to go after 11 am when the shops are open and also at night. Lights were wonderful as it was the mid Autumn celebration.

This science museum housed in a fascinating IM Pei designed building was a fun usage if an afternoon for me and 5 early-20's friends. We really enjoyed the various exhibits and the unique way that the swirling ramp takes gradually leads you and through each exhibit. It's probably even better for kids as there are some areas that are specifically... More

Excellent if you are travelling with children but there is still enough to fascinate adults particularly if there is a temporary exhibition. Incorporated into the Centre is also the Planetarium which hosts public talks/star viewing - fabulous. There is a good shop, and an on site McDonalds (good coffee) which probably a plus if again travelling with children. Served by... More

We visited the science centre in Macau. It has to be one of the best kids museum/centre we have visited in years! Every floor is packed with fun activities each a different topic. My son was delighted when he got to put on a hard hat a vest to build. The kids ran to each floor as they couldn't wait... More

My boys (4,2) cried when we told them we were leaving. Good idea to start at the top and work your way down...the exhibits are good sized - you're not walking excessively to get to the next activity. There's an app to record your progress too! Would definitely bring the kidies again!

Our own national science museum could learn a trick or two of the people behind the Macao Science Center

Because my wife and I were in Macau for 6 days, I guess we got to do a few things that most travellers would not get to see - The Science Museum being probably one of them. We really loved it! The museum is not expensive but it's incredibly well laid out and informative and not many visitors on the... More
