The area
Neighborhood: Tsim Sha Tsui
Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a busy and bustling neighborhood that never sleeps. On the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an abundant number of high-end retail stores selling designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also contains a diverse range of attractions for the entire family. Whether taking a walk in Kowloon Park, exploring museums, going shopping or grabbing a bite to eat – Tsim Sha Tsui has something for everyone.
How to get there

We had a great time here and ended up spending the best part of the day exploring the 4 floors of this museum. My favourite part was the mirror/optical illusion part.Try and get there for one of the four daily Energy Machine performances. On Wednesdays you can visit the museum for free.

Amazing!

We have been before, about 18
Months ago so it was great to see that their exhibitions have changed.
One of the best bits is the gigantic marble run which was on just as we had entered! It’s fantastic. The mirror room is also very clever and they explain the maths and angles too! A great day out!

Very Interactive
Dec 2019 • Family
The science museum's has free entry on a Wed. The museum is well organised. The exhibits are very interactive and interesting for adults as much as for children. The favourite exhibit was the construction site with a barrier to operate om, a crane, conveyor belt and barrows to move foam bricks around to build the house. The under 6's loved it. At busy times they keep people moving otherwise the children would stay for hours!
Just opposite the History museum so could visit the 2 together although may be stretching the attention span of children!

This is probably the best science museum i've been to. Very good interactive installations. It is 3 huges floors. You will be needing at least 2 hours to enjoy the entire museum. Its clean and updated. All items inside are working. Kids and students enjoys free entrance and only 20 hk for adults.

A must visit when you are in hongkong with your kids.

Good fun

The price to get in isn’t expensive. There is lots to see and worth paying the little extra for the Winter Olympics Exhibition, that is great fun for both children and adults. The big energy exhibition which runs on the top floor every now and again throughout the day was fascinating. We had good fun with the mirrors. The Museum is next to the History Museum. We managed both on the same day. I good rainy day activity.

Interative Science fun for all ages
Aug 2019
Rainy day in HK, so decided on the Science museum. What a great place. We have a 6 year old and 13 year old and both enjoyed the exhibits. The mirrors provided great laughs. The exhibit on how your body works was fun and very interactive. My 6 year old LOVED the construction site on the top floor, he got a little work permit and there were cranes and wheelbarrows to pick up foam bricks to build a house. Great Fun! The energy bowling ball exhibit was very interesting to watch.

Winter Olympics special exhibit
Jul 2019
The Winter Olympics special exhibit is well worth visit. VR oriented games. However, the fixed exhibitions are extremely outdated and not worth visiting.

We went because it was free on a Wednesday. There were masses of kids but understandably because the museum is good and very child friendly. Some things were out of order but enough to do. But not very academia science but for children.

A great way to entertain children
Jul 2019 • Family
If it is a rainy day in Hong Kong then the Science Museum is a great way to spend some time. Fully interactive exhibits kept our nearly teenagers fully engaged for longer than we expected. Maybe avoid a Sunday if you don’t like hundreds of small children and they only take payment via cash or Octopus card.

My kids 6&7y.o. went here to check out the exhibits together with the grandparents. Everything here were educational and interactive. Not only did the kids enjoy, but also the oldies :)
