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

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

Yes, Wednesday is free. That's a very good reason to avoid visiting on that day, as it will be even more crowded than usual.

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.
