I had been looking forward to the exhibition section, but unfortunately closed until the end of the year. The 3D show was definitely worthwhile though and I would recommend. Worth paying the extra HK$8 for the "expensive" seats! Hope to visit the exhibition rooms on a future trip to HK.

Unfortunately the exhibits are closed till the end of 2016, but we had the opportunity to see one of the lectures in the small lecture hall at the bottom. Seats were comfy, room a decent temperature, and we got to watch a BBC episode on solar storms, lol! Actually turned out to be quite an enjoyable afternoon. Next time we... More

I've seen 2 shows here. 1 on space 1 on robots. Offer english narrative and in 3D. Not really a museum any more though. Seems to be a planatarium type viewing place with a gift shop. Tickets are 32 HKD each. Impossible to miss. Tsim sha shui East metro. Look for the dome building

The exhibition halls are all shut for renovation so go only if you are interested in any of the shows - they have 3 - decoding starlight, robots and space & back (3d). Check the timing before you go coz there are only 2 shows each every day. We watched the decoding starlight show was decent.

This museum is being rennovated for most of 2016. There was only a musuem shop and film room open so cross this facility off your list.

Recent reviews are correct: this museum became hilariously bad and likely never was a grande dame of the HK museum scene, not that the kiddos who visited really knew the difference (especially the younger ones). Given all the emphasis today on STEM education, HK would be well served by a top-notch science museum. Thankfully, there is hope: a major renovation... More

The museum is incredibly cheap but is so hilariously out of date. Some of the videos and models are literally from the late 1970's I think. It should be renamed a museum of space museums I think, some of the exhibits are becoming historical in their own right and are probably not far off being 50 years old. There is... More

I believe this museum is closed till Spring, 2016 due to renovation. We visited the museum during August and was the last museum we hit on a free Wednesday museum day. At that time, the museum was dated and the museum looks bigger from the outside. We finished in about a hour. Hope the renovation may some improvement.

Visited here expecting much more. Not very busy when we went there. Thought they'd have some 3D shows and some other source of educational entertainment . Quite dissatisfied.
