  • Well set up with lots of interesting exhibits to suit kids of all ages, including preschoolers. Top floor is set up for the younger kids and although busy, was well managed with a timed "construction" play centre. Get a "ticket" for your child & wait for the allotted time. After 30min intervals the attendants ring a bell & heard out the kids ready for the next group. Basement has a mix of experiments & dinosaur bones. We had to go back after lunch: get a stamp on your ticket from the information counter for a "pass out".
  • Perfect place to visit whether you are a child or an adult. I took my 12 year old because I wanted something educational for her to see on our vacation and I ended up enjoying the science museum more than she did. What’s even better is that school aged children are free adult are $20. This is a must see.
  • Great place to take the little ones, as I don't have little ones I was a bit disappointed to find that it was fully child orientated. I did, however, enjoy the human body exhibition and the large energy machine show. Not bad for $20 dollars and a good way to escape the heat.
  • A really fun place for your kids to play with all day long. Admission here is really not expensive and a lot of activities are really good science facts. There is even a simulator in the basement which can simulate driving buses, taxis and trains. We had lots of fun playing it round and round and round for almost an hour. There is also a really cool thing that there’s a track for big balls to run through, and it’s really cool watching them roll through the track around the whole museum. It’s like a extra large version of a marble race. This place has really convenient transportation as it is right next to the East Tsim Sha Tsui Station and a Bus stop nearby. There is also a shop which sells science related things for kids when you exit the museum. They are a little more expensive but to really expensive.
  • So interactive for children of all ages from toddler+ & adults so many things to do over several levels. Planned to be here for an hour but almost 4hrs! Still didn't do everything. Free on Wednesdays. Not all staff speak English but very friendly and helpful
