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!

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

This museum is great for children. Planetarium with 3D theater is great. Fourteen exhibitions are interesting. Children are having fun with playing and learning. The building is beautifully designed by I M Pei, very famous architect. Great view of Macau tower and bridges can be seen from here.

A place should not miss when visiting Macau especially if you have children. A good place for children to learn and to play. It stimulates brain to think and let children to learn in a safety places together with parant. Children can even do role play in a well decoated room like construction site.

The Macau Science Centre has an excellent design. YOu simply go to the gallery at the highest level and then follow the spiral path to the galleries at other levels. You will find a wide-range of exhibitions and games from cooking, sports to astrology, weather and conservation. There are plenty of hands-on activities and the children would be engaged for... More

I took my students here twice this year. It is a great interactive science museum experience! I've taken students to science museums in 3 countries and aside from the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, this is the best so far!

This is a perfect place for families with kids. Please allow at least 3 hours to spend in there. My son, 4 and 1/2 years old, wouldn't leave. The place was both fun and educational. I would say it is suitable for kids ages 3 to 12.

Too bad there is no shuttle to go to the science centre. Taking a taxi is a challege there. Got overcharged for a short distance. The science center is very clean, with McDonald's. We could spend entire day there.
