  • Recently, there is an exhibition in the HK science museum, showing you the process of restoring some of the antique in the Peking Palace Museum. Apart from appreciating the beauty of these treasures, this exhibition is quite informative, you'll learn something if you're interested to learn how to maintain these treasure in good condition.
  • The museum is in my opinion aimed mainly towards children and young adults. It has many interactive and interesting activities, big and small, that really inspire to learn more. Signage is very good both in Chinese and English. A nice thing is that they house the first aircraft flown by Cathay Pacific as well as a "machine" with balls that shows kinetic forces, quite nice to watch. That said, as it is mainly for kids and children the niose level is somewhat bothering and you probably feel that you've seen it all after two hours or so.
  • Entrance fee is waived for everybody on Wednesday. This is a large and education place for young children, with various hands on exhibitions to experience and learn, very popular among school children.
  • Great place for pre-school kids and up to the elderly. It has different areas that you can spend few hours here learning some science concepts in interactive ways. Also in good location near the MTR station which is easy to reach and nearby Tsim Sha Tsui with lots shops and restaurants. Staff are friendly and helpful but no café inside the museum is a shame.
  • I loved this museum. I went to the museum with my 4 year old and we had a blast! We spent over 3 hours here. Really cool science museum with multiple floors. We spent 2hrs there which was enough time to see everything. There is also a science and technology museum attached/next door,
