Great place to visit with kids; you can find both permanent & temporary exhibitions there - temp "Printing technologies" was informative & nicely arranged, with few people inside, so, we could take a closer look. Permanent exhibitions, covering different aspects of science/technology were crowded (although, we were visiting museum on Monday), so, there was no possibility to try out majority... More

Macau is not a very child friendly place except inside those resort hotels. This science centre is an exception as it offered many activities for kids that can spend 2-4 hours depends on your schedule. It is suitable for kids about 2 years old.

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.

Macau doesn't necessary have a lot of must sees, especially as casinos and short trips seem to be the go. If you have more time this is a good place to go- approx 15 different areas going thru different areas of science- no Maths or equations- all practical and fun- my 3 yo and I have been back 3 times...

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.
