The science center has 12 rooms with different theme. From space science to food science, each theme provides interactive games for children to play and experience. There is a McDonald and mini playground at the lobby. It is also link to a space theatre with feature films at extra cost. This Science center is very impressive.

I am a teacher so anything with learning that is hands on is right up my alley. We first attended the 3-D show which was nice (Flying to the Moon) and we wish we could stick around to watch all of the other ones as well. Then we decided to see the rest of the museum. The architecture is quite... More

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.
