We love the science museum because our toddler loves it. It's just $2.5 for an adult (little kids are free) for hours of activities. There are plenty of interactive exhibits and demonstrations, a hall of mirrors, and the chance to see things like a dinosaur...More

The place was smaller than expected but it was still a fine place to visit if you have smaller kids, as there are interactive activities to occupy them. Worth visiting if you are out of places to visit in Hong Kong

A bit of a curate’s egg, this one! There are some exhibits which are quite interesting, but a lot which is quite mundane. Certainly not enough to keep an adult and teenager occupied beyond one hour. For younger children who want to push buttons and...More

The museum offers a lot of interesting hands on experiments, by which you can repeat the knowledge of natural sciences.

abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also
