As the Science Museum is a short walk from our hotel, we were keen to escape the humidity and enjoy the exhibits. However, although those that we working are generally very good, there is a large number 'undergoing maintenance'. If all of the exhibits had been available, I would have given this museum a 5 star rating as there is... More

We called in here since the typhoon rainstorm was not too pleasant. Since it was Wednesday it was also free entry so there was nothing to lose - it is pretty cheap entry on other days though. We enjoyed watching the huge energy machine and interacting with the many exhibits. We had no kids with us but it was still... More

Good place for young kids. It is not too elaborate. Would rate it as basic science museum. There is a entry fee for this museum.

Aging exhibits and a very uninteresting range of exhibits including one for occupational health and safety. Probably the worst of its kind i have been to. The powerhouse in sydney or the science museum in london provide a much better example of how to do it. Try the history musueum its much better and right next door.

A great museum for the kids with lots of things to try and learn from. There is also lots of demonstrations as well play and understand. The museum is free on Wednesday's but also pretty busy then.

I quote enjoyed my few hours here. However it is undoubtedly aimed at kids. I went on a holiday weekend so many children and difficult to see the exhibitions. Well layed out and very clean. Lots of English and everything has an explanation. The natural history area was my favourite. Nearest station is hung hom. Located opposite the history museum.

We went to the museum on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and were very glad that we did. We spent 4 hours in the museum with our 4, 6 and 8 year old boys and not a moment was spent with complaints about boredom, hunger or tiredness. There is three floors of exhibits and for the entry price of HKD$75... More

I didn't plan to go in there, but they had free entry and so I had a look. Great fun for kids, but I saw a lot of couples and adults too. In general, it is very nice there. Some exhibits are new, some are old, some are broken. A normal Science Museum 😉 The new exhibition on the lowest... More
