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!

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.
