There were some interesting exhibits but so crowded you could not see very well - a lot of children enjoying the hands on activities which was great but made it rather noisy and chaotic for me. Guess it was also Wednesday when the main permanent exhibition is free and you only have to pay for the special exhibition

This beautifully built museum is essentially a playground for kids. The interactive displays are poorly maintained, many don't work at all, and most do little to educate. The place is noisy, the children undisciplined and destructive. Don't waste your time on it unless you are in charge of a herd of uncontrollable kids.

The science museum was very easy to get to and was free because we went on a Wednesday. There was a paid exhibit that we decided not to do. The exhibits were interactive and informative. They were fun to play with and read about, even as adults. The museum is set on 3 different floors, with a nice variety of... More

If I had access to tools and methods like this to explain scientific concepts I would have been more into science. Most concepts were explained with the simplest predicament demonstration. It was an awesome experience.

Whilst there's a fair deal of propaganda style exhibits (workplace health and safety and other), the hand on nature of this place will have the kids happily entertained for a good couple of hours. And at HKD12.50 for kids, that's some of the cheapest entertainment you'll get in HK. Worth a visit, particularly if the weather is inclement.

Although we've visited before, we had family over from the UK and decided to take them to the Hong Kong Science Museum. Both adults and kids had a great time here. There's plenty to learn, see and do. Entry is cheap HKD25-HKD30 per adult (depending if one chooses to do the extra exhibit) & around HKD10 for kids, with kids... More

We went with my 3 boys for a daytime escape from the heat. Entry was cheap ($105hkd for 2 adults and 3 kids). The museum is well organised and very interactive. Displays were well set up and actually great fun. The kids did not want to leave. I would highly recommend it for families with kids up to 12yo

There's a lot to see in the science museum, but presentation lacks style and some of the exhibits are a bit tacky. It tries too hard to cater to school kids that visit the museum in large numbers, leaving curious adults wondering what they are doing there. Very much a local museum. Entry is free on Wednesdays, so avoid visiting... More

Our children (11, 10 and 6) quite enjoyed this museum, notwithstanding that it is a bit dated and (at least on free Wednesdays) had crowds of school groups going through. There is a strange focus on domesticity, but a lot of interactive options and a reasonable range of activities spanning the different ages. A few hours will allow you to... More

My Kids love this very much, especially my eldest who is really interested in science. I enjoyed it as well because I love science and I got to explain some of the exhibits there to my kids. If you are a person who like to only shop and not interested in history or science, this is not for you.
