When we saw the groups of school kids we thought we'd be falling over them, but there are so many hands-on exhibits that they were all engaged. There's a terrific video on the formation of the land of Hong Kong plus examples of the various...More

There are lots of interactive things here for children, and a fascinating giant machine that operates for a while each afternoon, with balls rolling along steel channels and making things beep and bang across the big foyer of the museum.

There are occasionally special exhibitions, and right now there happens to be two (really unusual): a small free exhibition on a painting/map depicting the Silk Road and a...More

We came to the science museum as we had a few hours to kill with our children. We had an awesome time. It is really interactive and interesting for both teenage kids and adults. FT students are free

One of my favourite museums in the city and I always have to visit when I come to HK. Free entry to permanent exhibits on Wednesdays. Great exhibits on display and many are interactive. Super informative and in both English and Chinese.

Want something different to do or have extra time in HK? Pay the museum a visit - you will not regret, lots of different zones, games activities and things to see. Kids will definitely love. My 4 year old had a blast!

There is a snack room, but no food sold there, just a vending machine with drinks and a microwave- so my guess is you are expected to bring your own food. All the cafes are way across the street from the museum park, so... More

I think it's on Hankow Rd, beside either a 7-11 or wellcome store, very near the Salisbury YMCA Hotel and the Peninsula Hotel.
