Amazing place to see. Staff and service were great and attentive. Good for kids too. Just few walks outside the building, we could see a beautiful view of HongKong and the sea.

Interesting though aimed more at children, we went on a Wednesday and were pleasantly surprised to find it was free on that day. Disappointingly there was nowhere to get a snack or a hot drink just coin operated cold drink dispensers so dont go around mealtimes.

Really great museum - even for teenagers - spent a couple of hours escaping the humidity and enjoyed so much we went back in - free to students all days and $200 HKD for adults. Great place and recommended

We go to the museum just to kill time but having a pleasant surprise. I would say it is better organized and educational than Singapore Science Centre with very much cheaper admission fee. We ended up spending half a day here and having to leave to catch out flight back.

I have been a couple times and find it disappointing. I have been to many so much better and find many containing more information. I have to say its really less than average if you travel and see many science museums. I have tried to like it more but just can't I would not recommend it as a destination place... More

We found this museum very geared up for children unlike the Science Museum in London and after a short walk round we left. However, if you have young children this would be a great place to visit as there is a lot of see/touch exhibits. Beware though it was very very busy with locals and their childen.

Due to rain, we went to both museums Science and History too. They are right next to each other. This was a better choice because of the small children. Very nice place, you can get free entrance if you are lucky. I think it is Thursdays.

This museum would be interesting to children as there are many scientific exhibits with hands on participation. They also have periodic live demonstrations involving such things as chemical reactions of common items used for food processing, etc. This exhibit hall has a gigantic roller ball exhibit that goes off once or twice a day where bowling ball size balls are...
